Syria opposition says government sending message it seeks military solution

GENEVA - The head of the Syrian opposition delegation said on Friday the government was sending a strong message that it did not want to negotiate a peace deal in Geneva and was seeking a military solution after launching an assault on Aleppo.
"Today, as usual the regime since early morning and as before every round of talks, it sends a strong message that it doesn't want a political solution, but a military solution that will bring destruction to the whole country," Asaad al-Zoubi said, referring to intensified fighting in the northern city.
He said government amendments made to UN special envoy Staffan de Mistura earlier in the day on guiding principles from a previous round of talks showed Damascus was "not serious about the political solution" and "divorced from reality."
