MONTREUX, Switzerland — Syrian peace talks are just underway in Switzerland and President Bashar Assad's status is already the subject of bitter clashes.
Secretary of State John Kerry says Assad has no legitimacy while Assad's foreign minister says only Syrians can remove Assad.
And the Western backed opposition says there can't be any talk of including Assad in a transitional government.
