Syrian VP calls for transition to democracy

Farouk al-Sharaa made the unusual call at the opening in Damascus of two days of government-sponsored talks about reforms.



Beirut: Syria`s vice president is calling
for a transition to a pluralistic democracy in his country.

Farouk al-Sharaa made the unusual call at the opening
on Sunday in Damascus of two days of government-sponsored talks
about reforms.

The gathering has been shunned by leading Syrian
opposition figures and prominent activists, who said they
would not attend as long as authorities persist in the
ruthless crackdown on protesters.

The regime of the family dynasty of President Bashar
Assad is grappling with a four-month-old anti-government
uprising, using a mix of violence and promises of reform to
quell the nationwide demonstrations.
