GENEVA: Syrian government negotiators will return to Geneva this weekend to rejoin United Nations-backed peace talks, after leaving the city in protest last week, the U.N. envoy said Thursday.The government delegation is scheduled to stay until Dec. 15, when the eighth round of the faltering UN-brokered talks is due to wrap up. The negotiations aimed at ending nearly seven years of bloodshed in Syria reopened last week. The talks were halted over the weekend before resuming Tuesday, but without the government team headed by Syria's U.N. ambassador Bashar al-Jaafari.
