BEIRUT: The Syrian government said on Saturday it would not discuss presidential elections at peace talks or hold talks with any party wishing to discuss the question of the presidency, as it confirmed its participation in U.N.-led peace talks next week.

“We will not talk to anyone who talks about the position of the presidency,” Foreign Minister Walid al-Moualem said during a televised news conference in Damascus. “I advise them that if this is their thinking, they shouldn’t come to the talks.”

“They must abandon these delusions.”
