Syrian opposition says will join with government in transitional body, but not with Assad himself

GENEVA – Syria’s main opposition group is willing to share membership of a transitional governing body with current members of the government of President Bashar Assad, but not with Assad himself, the group’s spokesman told Reuters in Geneva. “There are many people on the other side who we can really deal with,” Salim al-Muslat, the spokesman for the High Negotiations Committee, said on the second day of a round of UN-mediated peace talks in Geneva. “We will have no veto, as long as they don’t send us criminals, as long as they don’t send us people involved in the killing of Syrians.”
