Negotiations between Syrian negotiators broke off earlier than planned Tuesday amid mutual accusations and the government's anger over the resumption of U.S. aid to the opposition.U.N.-Arab League mediator Lakhdar Brahimi broke off the morning session after the opposition rejected a paper presented by the official Syrian delegation denouncing the resumption of U.S. aid.American officials said Monday the U.S. has restarted deliveries of nonlethal aid to the Syrian opposition, more than a month after al-Qaida-linked militants seized warehouses and prompted a sudden cutoff of Western supplies to the rebels.By mid-afternoon, Murhaf Joueijati, a member of the opposition Syrian National Coalition's negotiating team, told reporters the Geneva talks were breaking off for the day to give time for the government to make its proposal about the future of the country within the context of the 2012 accord.Joueijati accused the government of holding up the delivery of aid to Homs, which has been under siege for nearly two years.These groups gained control of Syria's uprising as it evolved into an insurgency.A tentative agreement was reached in Geneva last weekend for the evacuation of women and children trapped in Homs before aid convoys go in.
