Op­po­si­tion: No fi­nal de­ci­sion on at­tend­ing peace talks

The Washington Times Daily - - World -

BEIRUT | Syria’s main op­po­si­tion group in ex­ile said Tues­day it had not made a fi­nal de­ci­sion yet on whether it would par­tic­i­pate in a peace con­fer­ence in Geneva, adding that the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity must “prove its se­ri­ous­ness” by forc­ing Da­m­as­cus to agree on trust-build­ing mea­sures.

The com­ments il­lus­trate the hur­dles that lie ahead in bring­ing the war­ring sides to­gether at the Jan. 22 peace con­fer­ence. Scot­land’s fu­ture as an in­de­pen­dent coun­try, First Min­is­ter Alex Sal­mond’s ad­min­is­tra­tion de­scribed how the na­tion would pros­per if it were to leave the United King­dom. Scots will vote Sept. 18, 2014, on in­de­pen­dence.
