Syria’s main opposition High Negotiations Committee today flatly rejected a demand from President Bashar al-Assad for any transitional government to include his regime.

“International resolutions speak of... the formation of a transitional body with full powers, including presidential powers,” HNC senior member Asaad al-Zoabi said, adding “Assad should not remain for even one hour after the formation” of this body.
