Syrian opposition chiefs seek unity in Qatar talks
Doha: Syrian opposition factions are gathering in Qatar to seek agreement on leadership for a transitional administration that could step in as a stopgap government if rebel forces topple Bashar Assad`s regime.
Today`s planned meeting in Doha marks the most comprehensive bid to bring together various Syrian opposition groups and show world leaders a credible alternative to Assad.
The Syrian National Council has acted as the international face of the revolution, but it`s been unable to unite all dozens of disparate rebel factions under one banner.
Among the potential guiding forces for a transitional team is Brigadier General Manaf Tlass, one of the most senior figures to defect from Assad`s regime. He is urging all opposition forces to unite.
Qatar is a leading backer of the Syrian rebels.
