Syrian peace talk negotiators say after days of deadlock and dispute, discussions appeared to inch forward on Wednesday, when the subject of a transitional government was discussed for the first time. But the senior United Nations diplomat mediating the talks said both sides remained far apart. Lakhdar Brahimi, the special envoy for Syria, told reporters on Wednesday that he expected little progress in the final few days of talks, and that negotiators would decide before the conclusion on Friday when the next round would take place.
