Further doubt was cast for peace in Syria after the country's chief opposition negotiator resigned on Sunday.
Mohammed Alloush said the United Nations-mediated peace talks "have been unsuccessful because of the unwillingness of the regime to compromise and its continuation in the bombing and aggression against the Syrian people."
He told Al Jazeera, "The international community need[s] to put serious pressure on Russia and Assad to stop the killing of our people."
