Turkey plans to host Syria crisis talks

ISTANBUL - Turkey plans to host a meeting of "Friends of Syria", grouping mostly Arab and Western governments, on April 2 to find ways to pressure Syrian President Bashar Assad into halting a brutal crackdown on unrest, Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday.
More than 50 countries were represented at the first meeting of foreign ministers from the group in Tunis in late February.
Erdogan made the announcement a day after meeting UN-Arab League envoy to Syria, Kofi Annan in Ankara, following the envoy's visit to Damascus over the weekend for talks with Assad.
