    The first round of peace talks aimed at ending the civil war in Syria has ended without any significant breakthrough as rival sides blamed each other for lack of progress. United Nations Arab League envoy to Syria, Lakhdar Brahimi, said on Friday that while talks between Syria's regime and opposition had made slim progress, they had raised hopes for a solution to the country's civil war.
