UK backs talks between Syrian opposition, regime

Latest Update: 01.31.13, 19:27 / Israel News

Britain on Thursday welcomed the surprise declaration from Syria's top opposition leader that he would negotiate with President Bashar Assad's regime. British Foreign Secretary William Hague said dialogue was desirable, but added that any transitional government could not include Assad himself.


"We want to see a political, a diplomatic solution in Syria," Hague said as he headed into a European Union foreign ministers meeting in Brussels. "We've always wanted to see... a transitional government based on mutual consent." However, he said that such an agreement "means that Assad could not be part of such a transitional government."
