    The talks are scheduled to resume today.
    If all goes to plan, the talks will resume today.

    Thank you.
    Then what does "due to" mean in this sentence? I know "due to" means "because". But in this sentence it is something else. Please explain that to me.

    Yes, "due to" means "because of". But this is not "due to".
    This is "talks are due | to resume today.
    "due" means "scheduled" or "set" or "planned".
