After yesterday's bitter statements from the two Syrian delegations, the United Nations is using today to see whether there is any common ground between the regime of President Bashar Assad and the opposition.

Lakhdar Brahimi, the U.N. mediator on Syria, is meeting separately with each Syrian delegation and said there are signs they might be willing to bend on humanitarian aid, ceasefires and prisoner exchanges.

The BBC’s Imogen Foulkes joins Here & Now’s Sacha Pfeiffer from Geneva to discuss how the talks are progressing.
