The Syrian opposition is willing to hold peace talks with President Bashar al-Assad's representatives in rebel-held areas of northern Syria, Syrian opposition top leader has said.
Mouaz al-Khatib, Syrian National Coalition leader, said Sunday in his page on that the talks will lead to find a way for Assad to leave power with the "minimum of bloodshed and destruction."
"If the regime is so concerned about sovereignty and does not want to venture out of Syrian territories, then there is a suitable solution, which is the liberated land in northern Syria," Khatib said.
"There is an important question. Will the regime agree to leave with the minimum of blood and destruction?"
Khatib reminded, however, that even centrist opposition figures such as Abdulaziz al-Khayer, has been jailed.
"The regime deals with the demands to release the political prisoners, especially the women, in a totally inhumane way," Khatib said. "Despite two years of savage killing, the regime is still trying to buy time."
