GENEVA (AP) — The U.N. says a face-to-face meeting between Syria's government and the Western-backed opposition hoping to overthrow it is not going to happen as planned in Switzerland today. Today was supposed to be the first time since the uprising against Bashar Assad began that the two sides would sit down for direct negotiations. U.N. mediator Lakhdar Brahimi is meeting this morning with representatives of Assad and will meet later in the afternoon with a delegation from the Syrian National Coalition. A U.N. spokeswoman has not ruled out direct talks later. An Assad adviser is blaming the opposition, saying her delegation is willing to negotiate.
