Syria's government says won't discuss presidency at talks
By Tom Perry BEIRUT (Reuters) - Syria's government on Saturday ruled out any discussion of the presidency or presidential elections at peace talks and criticised the U.N. envoy overseeing next week's negotiations. The opposition in turn accused Damascus of trying to stop the talks before they had started - an exchange that reflected the huge challenges facing diplomats trying to build on a ceasefire deal that has cut violence since Feb. 27. Foreign Minister Walid al-Moualem confirmed his government's participation in the talks but said they would fail if the opposition had "delusions that they will take power in Geneva that they failed to take in battle".
