Syrian government and opposition delegates said Friday that talks to end their country's war had reached an impasse, with the U.S. and Russia backing the rival camps and trading accusations over the deadlock.Earlier Friday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov accused Washington of focusing exclusively on "regime change," while U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry suggested Moscow was backtracking on earlier commitments.From Beijing, Kerry said agreeing on a transition government was the sole purpose of the Geneva talks, and that Lavrov had been present previously when Kerry said that was the goal.Kerry told reporters Obama was concerned about the deterioration in the humanitarian situation in Syria and also by the Geneva talks' failure to discuss a transitional government.
