Syrian President Bashar Assad, visiting Turkey, said on Wednesday that his country opposes direct negotiations with Israel, Israel Radio reported. In an interview a Turkish paper, Assad said that only after major progress is achieved in talks mediated by Turkey, will it be possible to hold direct meetings. The Syrian-Israeli talks held in the nineties failed because they did not focus on the details of a future peace agreement, Assad claimed.
