GENEVA - Syria's opposition must accept that they have not won the six and a half year war against President Bashar al-Assad, UN peace talks mediator Staffan de Mistura said on Wednesday.

"The issue is ... will the opposition be able to be unified and realistic enough to realize they did not win the war?" he said.

Asked if he was implying that Assad had won, he said: "I am not the one to write the history of this conflict ... but at the current moment I don’t think anyone can actually claim to have won the war."
