The sixth round of Syria talks in Geneva Friday concluded in failure as there was no progress on any issue for a political solution to the Syrian crisis.

The latest round of talks was expected to focus on four topics: the constitution, governance, elections, and fight against terrorism.

Speaking at the end of talks in UN at Geneva, the head of delegation from the Bashar al-Assad regime, Bashar al-Jaafari told reporters that none of these topics were discussed.

UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura said in a news conference: “We did not have a time to go deeply into all four baskets.

De Mistura said the date of the next round of talks is likely to be announced in mid-June.

Following the end of this round of peace talks, the head of the opposition delegation Nasr al-Hariri told reporters: "l think we shall speak about every little achievement. I think keeping Geneva progress alive is an achievement."
