Syria's main opposition group said on Monday it was willing to attend peace talks on the condition that President Bashar al-Assad transfer power and is excluded from any transition process.

In a statement issued after two days of meetings in Istanbul, the key National Coalition said it would take part in mooted peace talks in Geneva "on the basis of the full transfer of power".

It also stipulated "that Assad and those with the blood of Syrians on their hands have no role in the transitional phase and Syria's future".
