Syrian official says Geneva peace conference planned Nov. 23-24
MOSCOW Oct 17 (Reuters) - Syrian Deputy Prime Minister Qadri Jamil said on Thursday that a long-delayed international conference aimed to bring the Syrian government and opposition together to seek an end to the country's civil war is scheduled to be held Nov. 23-24.
Jamil named the dates when he was asked at a news conference in Moscow whether plans for the "Geneva 2" conference, which Russia and the United States have been trying to organise since May, had been pushed back from mid-November to late November or December.
