UN fails to break deadlock in Syria talks
The UN failed to break a deadlock at Syrian peace negotiations in Geneva on Tuesday, with talks interrupted after the regime railed against Washington instead of dealing with a transition of power.


After a difficult morning meeting on the fourth day of talks, UN mediator Lakhdar Brahimi said he had decided to cancel afternoon talks and reconvene the parties for "what I hope will be a better session" on Wednesday morning. "Nobody is walking out, nobody is running away," Brahimi told reporters. "We have not achieved any breakthrough, but we are still at it, and this is good enough as far as I'm concerned." (AFP)
