(MENAFN - Qatar News Agency) UN mediator for Syrian peace talks Lakhdar Brahimi is to hold separate talks with Syrian rival delegations to assess their willingness to meet together.

The behind-the-scenes negotiations follow the first day of a major peace conference in Switzerland which ended in bitter divisions

Brahimi's initiative takes place before full talks resume on Friday

It remains unclear whether the two sides will negotiate face-to-face - as planned by the UN - when talks restart

The (BBC) says that while the peace process may have got off to a rocky start in Montreux - with heated disagreements on Wednesday - at least neither of the two rival delegations from the government and the opposition walked out

The UN special envoy is not sure he will get the two sides to talk face to face as planned on Friday

Brahimi has revealed that he still does not know if the two sides are even prepared to sit in the same room

He intends to consult them separately on Thursday to gauge what is possible.
