Syria’s main opposition umbrella group is meeting UN special envoy Staffan de Mistura in Geneva, after receiving assurances on humanitarian issues.

According to BBC News, the High Negotiations Committee (HNC) said Mr. de Mistura had responded positively to its demands for an end to sieges and the bombing of civilians.

Unless they are met, the HNC has insisted it will not take part in indirect peace talks in Switzerland.

More than 250,000 people have died in almost five years of war in Syria.
