The Syrian opposition delegation gave the victory sign in Geneva on Saturday, before heading off to meet its foe. For the first time during Syria's three-year-long civil war, the opposition and the Syrian government sat down in the same room to hammer out peace talks. The two sides entered and left from separate doors. They sat at separate tables. The only person to speak was the U.N. mediator. And the meeting lasted just 30 minutes. The Syrian National Coalition Spokesman left with his reservations. (SOUNDBITE) (English) SYRIAN NATIONAL COALITION SPOKESMAN LOUAY SAFI SAYING: "Well we have a lot of suspicions about the intentions of the regime's delegation about the seriousness and the goodwill." They'll meet again in the afternoon. But it won't be to discuss major stumbling blocks, like the possible removal from power of Syrian President Basher al-Assad. Syria's ambassador to the U.N., Bashar Jaafari. (SOUNDBITE) (English) SYRIAN AMBASSADOR TO THE UNITED NATIONS, BASHAR JAAFARI, SAYING: "We may have some reservations with regard this point or that point but we will discuss everything on time. Today we will not get into the substance. Today is about formalities." Formalities, like a short term cease fire in Homs, so aid agencies can enter the besieged rebel-held city. Meanwhile, other cities like Aleppo remain caught in the conflict. Amateur video which Reuters can't verify purports to show men rescuing a toddler from a pile of rubble. Some 130,000 thousand people have died in the fighting. And nearly a third of the country has been displaced -- in a war that shows little real hope for ending anytime soon.
