Syria conflict: Minister blasts opposition's 'immaturity'

The Syrian government and opposition have traded insults after a week-long peace conference in Geneva ended with no firm agreement.

Foreign Minister Walid Muallem said the discussions had not progressed because of the opposition's "lack of maturity and seriousness".

He would not commit the government to further talks, saying he would return if the people of Syria wanted him to.
