Turkish Foreign Minister, Ahmet Davutoglu questioned the Syria regime's position at the Geneva II talks after Syria regime officials refused to discuss an interim government without Bashar Assad, Anadolu Agency reported.

Speaking to press at the 22nd African Union Summit in Ethiopia's capital Addis Ababa, Davutoglu said that the important thing was to attend talks whilst abiding by the consensus reached at Geneva I talks, not to attend just physically.

"The Syrian regime says they will not recognize any interim government. Then, why are they in Geneva?" asked Davutoglu.

Davutoglu accused the Syria regime of stalling, as the regime delegations invited the Syrian National Coalition (SNC) to Damascus to continue the talks.

Set to continue until Friday, the Geneva II International Peace Conference is presently being held in Geneva, Switzerland, to try and find a political solution to end almost three years of civil war in Syria.
