GENEVA: International mediator Kofi Annan said on Friday he was "optimistic" that ministerial crisis talks on Syria being held on Saturday would produce an acceptable outcome.

"I think we are going to have a good meeting tomorrow (Saturday). I am optimistic," Annan told Reuters TV in Geneva after Russia proposed changes to his plan for a national unity government. The talks would end "with an acceptable result", he said.

His spokesman Ahmad Fawzi said: "The talks are on course and the preparatory meeting is going ahead this morning (Friday)."
