Tense session breaks up over Syria transition

Published: 01.27.14, 15:49 / Israel News

The first meeting meant to discuss the contentious issue of a Syrian transitional government broke up less than an hour after it began Monday following a tense session that one delegate described as "a dialogue of the deaf."

 

The Syrian government has said it will not discuss replacing President Bashar Assad as the leader of a country his family has ruled since 1970.

 

The opposition insists he must step down in favor of a transitional governing body with full executive powers that would lead the country until elections are held. (AP)
