Beirut: Syria's rival sides said Monday that they would not quit peace talks despite being deadlocked after a session aimed at tackling the explosive issue of a transfer of power.

Pressed on whether the government delegation would walk out, Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Muqdad responded: "Never! We shall not leave the table. We shall continue discussing."

Speaking separately, opposition delegate Rima Fleihan said: "We are positive and we're going to stay here until the goal of this conference has been achieved, the formation of a transition governing body."
