GENEVA (Reuters) - The prospects for a new round of Syria peace talks should be clearer after the U.N. Security Council discusses the various options on June 29, U.N. Syria envoy Staffan de Mistura said on Thursday.

De Mistura said he had accompanied U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to St Petersburg last week where they had "quite a comprehensive and long meeting" with Russian President Vladimir Putin and with Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov that mostly focused on Syria.
