Syria’s opposition High Negotiations Committee said today that it will not attend a planned afternoon meeting with the UN special envoy.

"There is no meeting with (Staffan) de Mistura," said Farah Atassi, member of the HNC.

"We presented the demands that we wanted to demand. At this moment, there is no reason to repeat ourselves with de Mistura," she told reporters outside of the UN headquarters in Geneva.

United Nations spokeswoman Khawla Mattar also confirmed that there would be "no other meetings today" with de Mistura, who met with the Assad regime delegation today morning.
