Syria's rival sides end Moscow talks, no sign of progress

MOSCOW - Talks between representatives of the Syrian government and some members of the opposition have ended in Moscow with no sign of a significant breakthrough.

The second such talks in Moscow this year were marred by friction among President Bashar Assad's critics, and were not attended by the Western-backed Syrian National Coalition.

Qadri Jamil, a former Syrian government official who has joined the opposition ranks, told a news conference the two delegations agreed on the need for a political transition based on a document reached at international talks in Geneva in 2012.
