UN mediator Lakhdar Brahimi said the ice is slowly breaking in peace talks between Syria's warring sides, warning though that no substantive results were expected during this round.

He acknowledged he did not expect "anything substantive" to come out of the initial round, which is set to conclude Friday.

But he stressed that simply getting the parties talking for the first time since the conflict erupted in March 2011 was an important step forward.

Brahimi said the delegations from President Bashar al-Assad's regime and the opposition National Coalition are set to determine Friday when they will return to Geneva, likely after a week.
