Syrian opposition chief renews dialogue offer

The leader of Syria's main opposition group is calling on President Bashar Assad to respond to his call for dialogue to save the country.

 

Mouaz al-Khatib says he is extending his hand "to facilitate the peaceful departure" of the regime. Al-Khatib has said he is willing to talk to the regime if that would help end the bloodshed. His offer marked a departure from the mainstream opposition's narrative insisting that Assad step down before any talks. (AP)
