Brahimi backs Syrian opposition's dialogue call
International envoy to Syria Lakhdar Brahimi threw his support Sunday behind the call for negotiations made by head of Syria's opposition coalition Moaz al- Khatib, as Syrian Prime Minister Wael al-Halqi urged all Syrian parties to engage in the political process outlined by President Bashar Assad.


At a joint press conference with AL Secretary-General Nabil al- Arabi in Cairo, Brahimi urged Sunday all sides of the conflict in Syria, the Arab region and the international community to respond to al-Khatib's call for dialogue. (Ynet)
