The foreign ministers of Algeria, Egypt, Iraq, Oman, Qatar and Sudan would discuss a US-Russian push for a conference aimed at finding a political solution to the Syria conflict, Ahmed Ben-Hilli told reporters.
Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates would also join the meeting “to follow up on developments in Syria in light of the US-Russian understanding,” he said.
The conference is meant to include both rebels and members of the regime — a difficulty considering some opposition members’ refusal to recognise President Bashar al-Assad as a negotiating partner.
Moscow is also calling for the inclusion on this occasion of its trading partner Iran and US ally Saudi Arabia as a counterweight.
