‘Assad regime ready to negotiate with Syrian opposition`

Opposition leader Moaz Alkhatib has offered to talk to Syria`s rulers about trying to end the conflict, subject to conditions including the release of 160,000 detainees.



London: Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi has that he believes the Syrian government is willing to negotiate ways with the opposition to bring a two-year bloody uprising against the regime to an end.

Opposition leader Moaz Alkhatib has offered to talk to Syria`s rulers about trying to end the conflict, subject to conditions including the release of 160,000 detainees.

Syrian President Bashar al Assad has not yet commented on the offer and a key opposing faction flatly rejected the initiative.

According to Sky News, the Syrian National Council, the main component of the opposition, has dismissed the possibility of any negotiations.

Alkhatib, who called on Assad to agree to let Vice President Faruq al Sharaa open peace talks with his coalition, appealed for the opposition to ‘declare our willingness to negotiate’ the regime’s departure.

But he had also set a deadline of Sunday for the government to release all women detainees, otherwise he would regard his offer of dialogue as rejected by the president, the report said.
