ANKARA, January 18, 21:39 /ITAR-TASS/. The National Coalition for Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces will attend the Geneva II international conference to begin in Montreux, Switzerland, on January 22.
The decision was made at the National Coalition’s General Assembly in Istanbul on Saturday, January 18. It was supported by 58 of 73 coalition members. Initially, the decision had to be adopted on Friday, January 17, but was postponed for a day because of disagreements among national Coalition members.
The conference, originally scheduled to take place in Geneva, will now be held in two parts, with the opening session in Montreux, and, after a day’s break, moving on 24 January to the world body’s headquarters in Geneva. The conference will bring the Syrian government and the opposition to a negotiating table for the first time since the conflict started in March 2011.
