Syrian gov't threatens to walk out of peace talks
Syrian state television says the government delegation at peace negotiation in Geneva will leave Saturday if "serious talks" do not start.


State TV said Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem gave a tight deadline to the UN mediator for talks that have struggled to get off the ground, hours after the UN said the Western-backed opposition and government delegation would not meet face-to-face as originally hoped. (AP)
