New peace meeting for Syria underway in London

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Foreign ministers from 11 countries met in London on Tuesday (October 22) to lay the groundwork for upcoming peace talks in Geneva, labelled Geneva 2. Earlier, British Foreign Secretary William Hague urged Syria's opposition groups to take part in the talks that are tentatively planned for November. The talks face great obstacles, including divisions within the opposition, rivalry between rebel groups and President Bashar al-Assad's reluctance to give up power. Many of the mostly Islamist rebel factions fighting on the ground do not recognize the exile opposition backed by the West. Britain, Egypt, France, Germany, Italy, Jordan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates and the United States are set to discuss the agenda for the Geneva meeting and how to help the opposition prepare for it, a U.S. official said.
