The United States and Russia failed on Tuesday to agree on a date for a Syrian peace conference, remaining divided over Iran's indeterminate role in the talks and over who would represent Syria's opposition.

"We were hoping that we'd be in a position to announce a date today; unfortunately we're not," UN-Arab League envoy Lakhdar Brahimi told reporters in Geneva on Tuesday.

"But we're still hoping that we'll be able to have the conference before the end of the year," he said, adding that he would meet again with Russian and US officials on Nov 25.
