UK's Johnson: Syrian opposition vision for post-Assad era could work
LONDON - A blueprint for a political transition in Syria, due to be presented by an opposition group in London on Wednesday, offers the first credible picture of a peaceful Syria without President Bashar Assad, Britain's Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said.

The High Negotiations Committee, the main Syrian opposition group at stalled UN-mediated peace talks, will propose a gradual transition, starting with six months of negotiations accompanied by a total ceasefire and full humanitarian access.

The plan then foresees the setting up of a transitional administration made up of opposition and government figures which would run Syria for 18 months, during which time Assad would depart. Then there would be elections.
