The ‘rebels’ yet again refuse peace talks

SYRIA’S opposition leader has rejected an invitation from Russia for peace talks with president Bashar al-Assad, dealing another blow to international hopes that diplomacy can end the country’s civil war.
Russia, Mr Assad’s main international protector, said yesterday that it had sent an invitation for a visit to Moaz Alkhatib, whose six-week-old National Coalition opposition group has been recognised by most western and Arab states as the legitimate voice of the Syrian people.
However, Mr Alkhatib said he had already ruled out such a trip and wanted an apology from Moscow for its support for
 Mr Assad.
