The current ceasefire in Syria depends on progress at peace talks in Geneva, UN envoy Staffan de Mistura says.
The envoy reports that the Syrian government's chief negotiator, Bashar al-Jaafari, told him Monday that "it was premature at the moment" to talk about political change in the country.
The truce has been largely holding and it has been accompanied by a surge in aid deliveries, de Mistura says, "but neither of the two can be sustained if we don't get the progress on the political transition."
