Deputy Foreign Minister of Syria, Faisal Mekdad has said the country has decided to take part in a second round of peace talks in Geneva set to begin next week.

The negotiations aim to broker a political solution to Syria’s civil war.

The Syrian opposition will also take part after the first was adjourned with no signs of progress on January 31.

State TV quoted Mekdad as saying on Friday that the government delegation will head to the talks scheduled to resume on Monday in Geneva, Switzerland.

Over 130,000 people have been killed in the Syrian war, with more than 2.3 million having to seek refuge abroad. Human rights groups have also alleged abuse of children in the war.
