BEIRUT- A Syrian insurgent group on Monday criticized as "biased" a United Nations envoy seeking a ceasefire between government forces and armed groups in Aleppo and said it would not meet him.

The Revolutionary Command Council (RCC) statement followed comments on Friday by Staffan de Mistura in which the UN mediator called President Bashar al-Assad "part of the solution for the reduction of the violence" and said he would continue discussions with him, after talks in Damascus last week.

"The Council with all its factions has decided to reject meeting the UN mediator due to his dishonest position towards the revolution of the Syrian people," the RCC statement said.
