U.N. Syria envoy Staffan de Mistura will be represented at talks on defusing the Syria conflict next month in Moscow, his spokeswoman said Tuesday, giving additional momentum to a process that has been rejected by the influential Muslim Brotherhood.Two rounds of Geneva talks early in 2014 failed to halt the conflict which has killed 200,000 people and divisions over the future role of Syrian President Bashar Assad remain a major stumbling block to a settlement.In its renewed peace effort, Assad's ally Russia floated the idea in recent weeks of hosting Syrian government and opposition figures in Moscow. A diplomat who tracks Syria said the talks could include discussions on ways to enforce Syria's security, the formation of a transitional government and discussions on how to enable people who defected earlier in the conflict back into Syria.However, it is unclear which Syrian opposition figures would attend the talks.Syria said Saturday that it was willing to participate in "preliminary consultations" in Moscow aimed at restarting talks next year.
