“We deeply regret that this round did not make any progress,” Faisal Maqdad, the Syrian deputy foreign minister, told reporters on Friday.

Speaking separately just minutes earlier, opposition spokesman Louay Safi complained about the other side’s failure to budge.

“The negotiations have reached an impasse,” Safi said.

Safi therefore urged all parties, particularly the government’s ally Russia, to exert pressure on the government to break the deadlock.

The Syrian rivals have failed to agree what should come top of the agenda of the talks.

The government delegation however want halting “terrorism” to be the priority, and rules out talks on transition while the violence rages.

Air strikes and clashes between rebels and government troops have continued unabated since the first round of talks in January, with daily death tolls over 200, according to activists.
