GENEVA, Jan. 24 -- UN mediator Lakhdar Brahimi confirmed Friday that neither the Syrian government nor the opposition is going to compromise, after President Bashar al-Assad's delegation threatened to walk out.

"I met the delegations of the opposition and the government separately yesterday and today, and tomorrow we expect, we have agreed, that we will meet in the same room," he said at a press conference.

"Both parties are going to be here tomorrow. They will be meeting. Then we will decide the following meeting on Sunday. Nobody will be leaving on Saturday and nobody will be leaving on Sunday," he emphasized.
