Syrian peace talks could be held November 23rd, but not without "credible opposition" participation, top diplomats said today, as a truck bomb in central Syria killed more than 30 people.

After a meeting with UN-Arab League envoy Lakhdar Brahimi, the point-man for international efforts to end Syrias nearly three-year civil war, Arab League chief Nabil al-Arabi said the so-called Geneva 2 talks would be held November 23rd.

But Brahimi, speaking to reporters in Cairo, cautioned that the meeting would not be convened without a "credible opposition representing an important segment of the Syrian people" opposed to President Bashar al-Assad.
