      Diplomats in Switzerland Attempt to End Syria Crisis

      Zee News reports the crucial Syria peace talks began, Wednesday, in this picturesque town on Lake Geneva amid little hope of a real breakthrough to end the years of bloodshed in the Middle Eastern country.

      Representatives of President Bashar al-Assad's regime and the opposition and diplomats from over 30 countries says Zee News, hope to try and find a negotiated settlement to war that has left 130,000 dead and forced millions from their homes..

      However, given the rigid stance adopted by both sides, adds Zee News, the talks may end without any real forward movement other than having achieved success in bringing the warring sides to the table.
