UN envoy backs Syrian opposition`s call for talks

Cairo: The international envoy to Syria is backing an opposition leader`s call for dialogue as fighting raged between rebels and government troops in at least three Syrian provinces.

Lakhdar Brahimi, the joint UN-Arab League envoy to Syria, says the proposal by Mouaz al-Khatib, the president of the opposition coalition, has opened the door and challenges the Syrian government to fulfil its often-repeated assertion that it is ready for a peaceful settlement.

Brahimi spoke to reporters today after talks with Arab League chief Nabil Elaraby at the league`s headquarters in Cairo.
Also today, a Britain-based rights group reported that at least six rebel field fighters were killed in clashes with Assad`s Army in the suburbs of the capital, the northern province of Hama and the southern restive town of Daraa.
