U.N. peace envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura Thursday vowed to press on with efforts for a truce in Aleppo, adding that wanted a resolution of the devastating conflict this year.De Mistura, a Swedish-Italian diplomat appointed as U.N. envoy on Syria in July, said the second city of Aleppo was a "symbolic microcosm of all of Syria". De Mistura said the Syrian conflict had rendered 12 million people in need, 7.6 million displaced, 3.3 million refugees and claimed 220,000 lives.The ancient city of Aleppo has been fought over mercilessly since a popular uprising against President Bashar Assad began in 2011 .However it is uncertain how the talks can take place, because the exiled opposition has already announced it will not attend.
