“They will start as planned, but I don’t have a time, I don’t have a location and I can’t tell you anything about the delegations ... later this morning we will have more news,” Fawzi said. “There will be, I know, a statement made later today by the office of the special envoy.”

“I can’t give you a time, I can’t give you a who, where, when,” he said.
