The Geneva II conference on Syria’s crisis remains deadlocked with the government and opposition representatives exchanging accusations as they discussed responsibility for violence.
According to Press TV, there was no progress reported by either side before one more day of discussions planned for Friday.
Lakhdar Brahimi, the UN-Arab League envoy for Syria has said, “We had tense moments and also rather promising moments.”
Speaking after the fifth day of the talks on Wednesday, Brahimi said that the Syrian government and opposition are unlikely to make “substantive” progress during the current round.
He also noted, “The ice is breaking slowly.”
