GENEVA, Jan 27 (Reuters) - A "declaration of principles" that the Syrian government presented at a peace conference in Geneva on Monday fails to address the main objective of the talks, the opposition said.

"The declaration is outside the framework of Geneva, which centres on creating a transitional governing body. It fails to address the core issue," the opposition's chief negotiator Hadi al Bahra told Reuters. (Reporting by Khaled Oweis, editing by Tom Miles)
