The Syrian government delegation has proposed principles for a peace deal at talks in Geneva, Information Minister Omran al-Zoubi says, dpa reported.

"The Syrian delegation has put forward a principles document affirming respect for Syria's sovereignty, the restoration of its stolen territory, and the elimination of all forms of violence and extremism ... and the others are rejecting it," al-Zoubi says.

President Bashar al-Assad would not leave office, because "the Syrian constitution provides that any president must take office through elections," al-Zoubi also says.
