International envoy Lakhdar Brahimi is scheduled to hold talks again next week with the United States and Russia to try to advance a blue print for an end to the conflict in Syria, the president of the UN Security Council said Thursday.
Pakistan's Ambassador Masood Khan, who presides the council in January, said a diplomatic blue print "already exists" and Brahimi had been trying to put it into practice, dpa reported.
Khan said the situation in Syria remains a priority for the 15-nation council, which may be briefed soon by Brahimi on his efforts to end the conflict.
"Brahimi is talking with Moscow, Washington and Damascus in an effort to pave the way for a diplomatic breakthrough," Khan said. "We hope he will succeed."
