GENEVA - International powers agreed on Saturday that a national unity government should be set up in Syria to resolve the conflict between President Bashar Assad and opposition forces trying to oust him.

Peace envoy Kofi Annan said after the talks in Geneva that the government should include members of Assad's administration and the opposition. It was not immediately clear what role, if any, was envisaged for Assad.
