U.K. envoy Mark Lyall Grant is arranging a Friday meeting between Security Council members and Syrian opposition representatives. The talks will focus on "ending the violence and preparing for the Geneva II conference, as well as addressing the issues of humanitarian access, human rights, refugees and protection of civilians," Lyall Grant said. On Tuesday, UN envoy Robert Serry told the Security Council that "Syria is increasingly turning into a regional, if not a global, battleground."
