GENEVA (Reuters) - The Syrian government reiterated its rejection on Saturday of a proposal to form a transitional ruling body as part of a political solution to the country's nearly three-year conflict.
"We have complete reservations regarding it," Information Minister Omran Zoabi told reporters shortly before the government was due to hold its first talks with an opposition delegation in Geneva, in the presence of international mediator Lakhdar Brahimi.
"Syria is a state with institutions," Zoabi said. "A transitional governing body ... happens where the state is in disintegration, or has no institutions."
