ROME, Dec. 14 (Xinhua) -- The Calciopoli peace talk ended on Wednesday with those present at the meeting admitting nothing had been achieved.

The summit, summoned by Gianni Petrucci, chief of the Italian Olympic Committee (CONI), was held in an effort to bring an end to the controversy which has shadowed the Italian game since the sentences of 2006.

Amongst those at the "peace table" were Juventus President Andrea Agnelli and Inter counterpart Massimo Moratti.

Milan Vice-President Adriano Galliani, Fiorentina patron Diego Della Valle, Napoli chief Aurelio De Laurentiis and Italian Football Federation President Giancarlo Abete were also present.

"It was a long, friendly and correct meeting," Petrucci was quoted by football-italia.net as saying. "But I must be honest and sincere, the subject of Calciopoli is still very hot so nobody changed their stance on the matter.

"There was a lot of good intentions, but no results have been obtained. I'll certainly think very carefuly before planning another meeting."

He added: "I'm disappointed, but we gave it everything and we'll sleep without problems tonight. There was no result, but no defeat either."

FIGC President Abete also confirmed that nobody took a backwards step.

"There was no change in position," Abete stated. "Despite all of the effort, it's hard to heal a deep wound."

Inter's Moratti, whose side were handed Juve's 2006 title, refused to go into detail about what was discussed.

"All meetings can be constructive and everything can be useful," he stated.

Agnelli, meanwhile, didn't leave a comment after admitting that he would talk to the media at a later stage about the events.
