Syria (Q&A - Excerpt from the daily press briefing - July 3, 2012)



Q : How many invitations have you issued for the meeting of the Friends of the Syrian People group on Friday? How many positive replies (differentiating between countries and organizations) have you received? Which opposition groups have you invited that have confirmed their presence? Will there be representatives from the Free Syrian Army?

A : The meeting of the Friends of the Syrian People group will bring together around a hundred representatives from governments and international and regional organizations who want to convey a strong message to Bashar al-Assad’s regime.

The opposition will obviously be widely represented.

I will be able to give you more details tomorrow.
