The UN's Syria envoy said he was "very, very sorry" Saturday as peace talks in Geneva broke off with no progress made and no date set for a third round.Just weeks after the warring parties sat down for the first time to seek a political settlement to the three-year conflict, a second round ended in acrimony. A monitoring group said this week more than 5,000 people had been killed since the talks began on January 22 .'I very much hope there will be a third round'Brahimi noted that the two sides at least had agreed on an agenda for future talks -- if they take place -- something they failed to do throughout the week. Brahimi said if the sides returned, they would discuss violence and terrorism first, then the transitional governing body (TGB), followed by national institutions and finally national reconciliation and national debate.US President Barack Obama vowed on Friday to push the regime harder.
