The BIG huha....may just be a US attempt to give the Syrian government side a bashing ,a bad name & repute in public opinion?
Syria's government has said fighting terrorism -not peace talks- are its priority, dismissing the opposition and any attempts at outside intervention.
Thursday's comments from Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem cast doubt on UN efforts this week to chart a path out of Syria's civil war.
Lakhdar Brahimi, the U.N. mediator, has said he would meet separately with both sides in Geneva a day after a testy opening to U.N.-sponsored peace talks.
But al-Moallem, who is in Switzerland, said the Syrian National Coalition did not represent the opposition and any efforts toward a political resolution to three years of fighting were premature. The priority is "to fight terrorism and this paves the way for the start of the political process," he said, according to Syria's state news agency.
