GENEVA, April 27. /TASS/. Syrian opposition’s High Negotiations Committee (HNC) will make a decision on whether to participate in the next round of Geneva talks in the next two or three days, HNC official representative Riad Naasan Agha told TASS on Wednesday.

"We need to wait for the results of the meeting. It will possible take place in Riyadh," he said answering a question on whether the HNC delegation is ready to return to Geneva for the third round of inter-Syrian talks that are expected to start on May 10-15. "Maybe, we will have an answer in 2-3 days," he added.

He added that HNC has not yet received an official invitation for a concrete date from UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura but did not rule out that the invitation may be sent in the next couple of days.

Agha also refrained from answering a question on HNC’s assessment of the current situation "on the ground" in Syria as the group cited this as the reason for suspending participation in Geneva talks. "This issue will be discussed at the coordination meeting, we should wait for its results," he said.

The second round of inter-Syrian talks ends today in Geneva. Russian President’s Special Envoy for the Middle East and Africa, Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov said earlier today that dialogue will resume on May 10.
