Jamal Wakim, a professor at the Lebanese International University, says several rounds of UN-brokered peace talks on the conflict in Syria have borne no fruit since the United States and militant groups will not go by any agreement.

“This round will be counted as sixth round with no result because the United States and the insurgents backed by the United States are not willing to go by any agreement or by any settlement with the Syrian government at the moment,” Wakim said on Tuesday.
