UN-led talks involving Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's government and opposition forces came to a premature standstill on Feb. 3 after parties failed to see eye to eye on a number of issues.
Since then, much progress has been made on both the humanitarian and cessation of hostilities front in the country at war since 2011.
Implemented almost two weeks ago pursuant to an agreement adhered to by 97 armed groups and the Syrian government and backed by regional and international powers, the cessation of hostilities has largely held despite a number of incidents.
