Representatives of Syrian President Bashar Assad and opposition figures agreed at talks Thursday to hold another round in Moscow, moderator Vitaly Naumkin said Thursday, but no date was set.The talks, a Russian initiative to revive stalled peace efforts in Syria's 4-year-old civil war, were shunned by the main Syrian political opposition, and participants came together to adopt a series of points that largely represent Russia's own position on the violence.
