BEIRUT - Syria said on Monday it will hold talks with the opposition on July 10 to set the framework for a national dialogue promised by Syrian President Bashar Assad, who is facing a three-month uprising for political freedoms.

The state news agency SANA said constitutional amendments, including changes to an article which puts the Baath Party at the center of Syrian politics, would be on the agenda of the July 10 meeting.
