Syrian armed opposition suspends participation in Astana peace talks

ASTANA, May 3 (Reuters) - The Syrian armed opposition said on Wednesday it had suspended its participation in the talks on settling the Syrian crisis being held in the Kazakh capital Astana, demanding an end to government bombardment of the areas under its control.

“The delegation has suspended its participation after presenting a memorandum for a total commitment to stopping (government) bombardments,” said political opposition SNC spokesman Ahmad Ramadan. (Reporting by John Davison and Olzhas Auyezov; Writing by Dmitry Solovyov; Editing by Maria Kiselyova)
