United Nations Syria envoy Staffan de Mistura will brief the U.N. Security Council via videolink on Friday, two days after he suspended peace talks and said the big powers needed to do more to support him, U.N. spokesman Ahmad Fawzi said.

De Mistura will also meet Syrian opposition figure Qadri Jamil, who was not part of the opposition delegation at the talks earlier in the week, Fawzi said.
