Good Luck.
man in charge of Syrian peace talks has apologised to Syrian people. Lakhdar Brahimi is United Nations’ peace envoy to Syria. His job was to help two sides in Syria's civil war make peace. Syria's government and Syrian rebel leaders are in Geneva to try and find way to end the war. It is second time they have sat down together. There are many difficult problems to discuss. The Syrian people are hoping two sides can reach deal. They are tired of fighting. More than 140,000 have died in three-year war and three million need humanitarian aid. Mr Brahimi said: "I’m very, very sorry. I think it is better that every side goes back and reflects, and accepts their responsibility."

two sides in Syria's peace talks ended their discussions being angry with each other. Mr Brahimi asked them if they really wanted peace talks to continue or not. They did not set date for future talks. UK's Foreign Secretary William Hague said breakdown of the talks was very sad. He said it was " serious setback in the search for peace in Syria". Syria's opposition leader blamed Syria's government for failure of talks. He said: "The regime is not serious….I'm very sorry to say there is nothing positive we can take from this." Syria's government team said the talks failed because the opposition people were "amateurs". Mr Brahimi was still hopeful and said: "I very much hope there will be third round."
