The U.N. press office said General Ban Ki-moon is sending out invitations on Monday to potential participants in Syrian peace talks scheduled to take place in Switzerland this month. The list of invitees was determined at a December 20 meeting between Russia, the United States and the United Nations. Key players in the talks to try to end Syria's civil war are President Bashar al-Assad's government and opposition rebels that have been fighting for nearly three years to oust him.
