Fiery exchanges over Assad fate at Syria peace talks

A Syrian man holds up a copy of the Koran, Islam's holy book at the scene of a reported airstrike by government forces on the al-Fardous neighbourhood of Aleppo, on January 21, 2014Montreux (Switzerland) (AFP) – The biggest push yet to end Syria's bloodshed was marked by fiery exchanges Wednesday as the warring sides and global powers clashed over President Bashar al-Assad's fate at a UN peace conference in Switzerland. After a day of formal speeches set to be followed this week by talks involving the two sides, UN leader Ban Ki-moon urged Syria's regime and opposition to finally work together at the table. "The world wants an urgent end to the conflict," Ban said in a closing press conference at the talks in the Swiss town of Montreux. Branding the opposition "traitors" and foreign agents, Syrian officials insisted Assad will not give up power, while the opposition said he must step down and face trial.
