GENEVA (Reuters) - The U.N. mediator at Syria peace talks in Geneva has handed all the delegations a paper with 12 principles that would be the basis for a second round of negotiations, said the head of the "Moscow Platform" political grouping at the talks.

Hamzi Menzer cited U.N. mediator Staffan de Mistura, who gave the group a copy of the one-page document, as saying that the Geneva process would resume in the coming weeks.
