Opposition coalition to name his delegation for "Geneva-2"

A senior official with Syria's Western-backed main opposition group says its leadership will meet to name members of a delegation heading to a peace conference this week.

Ahmad Ramadan said the meeting is planned for later Sunday in Istanbul. He said it will decide who will negotiate with the Syrian government delegation in Switzerland.

Ramadan's comments came a day after the opposition coalition voted in favor of attending the conference, paving the way for the first direct talks between the rival sides in the nearly three-year conflict.

Ramadan said the 15-member delegation will include two representatives of the country's ethnic Kurdish minority, two for militants and two for opposition groups based in Syria.
