UN envoy Mistura said Thursday that Syria peace talks in Geneva were a "golden opportunity missed" as another round ended without progress. reports citing The Daily Star.

The Geneva talks began in 2014 and six previous rounds of U.N.-backed negotiations have failed to yield concrete results, while hopes for a major breakthrough remain bleak.

Since March 2011 when civil war erupted in Syria, more than 300,000 people have been killed, according to the U.N. The Syrian Center for Policy Research puts the death toll at more than 470,000.

Despite the heavy toll of the Syrian civil war on both sides, the Assad regime has also gained momentum. Over the last year, Assad has strengthened his position on the ground, while opposition forces are reeling from a major setback in the capital city of Damascus.
