Brahimi told a press conference after meetings that the fifth day of joint meetings between delegations of Syria government and the opposition involved tentative discussions on transitional governing body, a news agency reported.

Though the latest round of ongoing talks was expected to conclude on Friday when they would discuss over the date to resume the next session, Brahimi said. But added that he did not expect anything substantive could be achieved from this.

"We talked about the transitional governing body, but of course it's a very, very preliminary discussion," he said.

Both sides were willing to continue the talks but the gap between the two sides was ‘quite large’. “Humanitarian issues, in particular about Homs, were also among the topics for today’s meeting,” he said, adding that the negotiations between UN and the Syrian authorities were still going on.
