Syrian President Bashar Assad has said his country will not send representatives to the US-sponsored Middle East peace meeting in November if the meeting does not include Syrian interests - particularly the return of the Golan Heights, Israel Radio reported. In an interview with BBC Radio in Arabic, Assad said that although no opportunity for peace should be missed, he believed there was no guarantee that the conference would succeed as far as the Palestinian-Israeli conflict was concerned.
