GENEVA, Jan. 25 (Xinhua) -- The Syrian government and the country's opposition held direct talks on Saturday for the first time since they entered into a war three years ago, the UN said.

According to sources from the UN Information Service of Geneva, the two warring sides "are now meeting together with the Joint Special Representative (Lakhdar Brahimi) at the UN Office at Geneva."

It is the first time in three years that the two sides have direct dialogue, despite a rocky start of the Geneva II conference which began Wednesday in the lakeside Swiss city Montreux.
