Secretary of State John Kerry on Saturday will meet with international partners in Vienna for continued discussions on Syria’s nearly five-year conflict, the State Department announced Monday.

Kerry will travel to the Austrian capital after visiting Tunis on Friday to meet with local officials and civil society leaders.

The focus of Saturday’s discussions will be on a long-sought political transition in Syria, according to State Department spokesman John Kirby.

“I would fully expect, as these ministers have in the past, to continue to talk about the composition of the opposition and the logistics around how do you get the opposition to the table,” Kirby told reporters.

America’s top diplomat will round out his trip by traveling to the Turkish city of Antalya where he will join U.S. President Barack Obama at G-20 leaders summit before returning to Washington.
