Syria Opposition Groups Agree on Framework for Talks with President Assad

Syrian political and armed opposition groups meeting in Riyadh have agreed on a framework for negotiations with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, opposition sources told AFP on Thursday.

“An agreement has been reached on … a unified vision for the settlement process and a supreme committee that would act as a reference for the negotiating team, the composition of which will be specified later,” said Suhair Atassi, a member of the National Coalition, the main opposition grouping; AFP reported.

The foreign-sponsored conflict in Syria, which flared in March 2011, has claimed the lives of more than 250,000 people and left over one million injured, according to the United Nations.

The world body says 12.2 million people, including more than 5.6 million children, remain in need of humanitarian assistance. The foreign-sponsored militancy has displaced 7.6 million people.
