Syria peace talks 'will continue', says Assad adviser

Peace talks in Geneva will continue despite the opposition's rejection of a "declaration of principles" presented by the Syrian government team, according to an adviser to President Bashar al-Assad.

Speaking to the BBC's Lina Sinjab, Bouthaina Shaaban said: "We want to continue talking until we find a solution."

The peace talks resumed on Monday morning, but the sides cannot agree on the future role of the Syrian president.
