Syria talks end despite slow progress

United Nations (UN) envoy Lakhdar Brahimi has said progress at the Syria peace talks has been slow but can form a basis on which the two sides can build.

At the end of the week-long conference in Geneva the UN envoy said he had seen a little bit of common ground between government delegates and the opposition.

However, Syria's Foreign Minister Walid Muallem, said there had been no tangible results from the conference.

Another round of talks has been scheduled for February 10.

The opposition has agreed to take part, but Muallem refused to commit.

More than 100,000 people have died in Syria since the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad began in March 2011.
