BEIRUT - Syria wants details on a US-Russian proposed conference to end the war before it makes it decision to attend and says the role of President Bashar Assad is a decision "only for the Syrian people and the ballot box", a minister said on Tuesday.

Syrian Information Minister Omran Zoabi was quoted by state news agency SANA as saying that Syria welcomed the proposal but stressed it "will not be a party at all to any ... meeting which harms, directly or indirectly, national sovereignty".
