Assad meets Turkish Islamist party leader

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: A day after 26 people were killed during what the Syrian government called a suicide attack in Damascus, President Bashar al Assad held talks with the leader of Turkey's Islamist-based Felicity Party, Mustafa Kamalak on Saturday (January 7). Syrian state television said Kamalak "voiced the Turkish peoples support for the Syrian people and confrontation of the conspiracy hatched against them." Some in the opposition said the government itself had staged the attack to try to show that it was fighting blind violence rather than a pro-democracy movement. State television went on to report that Kamalak expressed hope that Syria Turkish relations would return to normal soon.
