Syria opposition agrees to attend Geneva peace talks

A Syrian man rides his bike past the rubble of destroyed buildings on March 7, 2016, in the rebel-held town of DoumaSyria’s opposition on Monday agreed to attend a new round of UN-sponsored peace talks set for this week in Geneva after a landmark ceasefire led to a dramatic drop in fighting. The truce between President Bashar al-Assad’s regime and non-jihadist rebels, brokered by Russia and the United States, has defied expectations and led to the first significant decline in violence in Syria’s nearly five-year civil war. The United Nations is hoping it can now restart talks on a political transition that collapsed last month in Geneva.
