The United Nations special envoy for Syria says the next round of peace talks on the resolution of the Syrian war will be held on March 23, Press TV reported.

Following a UN Security Council closed-door meeting on Wednesday, Staffan de Mistura said that counter-terrorism will be added to the agenda in the fifth round of the talks.

He further called on the participants of the upcoming separate Kazakhstan talks to focus on the challenges of the ceasefire in Syria, stressing that without a robust ceasefire, the talks in Geneva "will be fragile."

Referring to the last round of talks in the Swiss city, he said the results of the negotiations exceeded expectations.

“No one left. Everybody stayed. They were focused. We got an agenda. We got a timeline. We got some agreement of substance,” he said.
