The Syrian regime has been invited to a new round of peace talks with the opposition in Geneva from March 14, a source close to the regime delegation said Monday.

"The delegation received an invitation on Sunday from the United Nations, asking us to take part in negotiations starting March 14 in Geneva," the source said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

The source did not specify when the regime delegation would arrive in the Swiss city for the latest round of indirect negotiations aimed at ending the nearly five-year conflict.

The negotiations will be the first held since an unprecedented ceasefire took hold on February 27 following an agreement between Russia and the United States.

The UN's Syria envoy Staffan de Mistura had said the new talks would begin from Thursday.
