Syrian National Coalition to discuss Geneva

World Bulletin / News Desk

Istanbul-based opposition group Syrian National Coalition is meeting for a two-day general assembly as anticipation grows for an international conference later this month on a solution to the ongoing civil war in Syria.

The SNC's eleventh general assembly is expected to broach participation to the Geneva-2 conference slated for January 22, and election of a new president now that the tenure of Ahmad Jarba is over.

The opposition group is said to be under pressure as the Syrian National Council, one of the largest formations within the SNC, has announced it will not take part in Geneva-2 because the embattled Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad has not taken necessary steps to free captives, stop airstrikes, and open secure corridors - conditions earlier set by the Council for participating.
