A powerful Syrian rebel group said a conference to try to unify Syria’s opposition will open on Tuesday in Saudi Arabia, and that it had been invited to the talks.

“Islam Army has received an invitation to attend the Riyadh conference, which has been decided to be held December 8-10,” it said in a written statement.

Islam Army did not say whether it planned to attend, Arabianbusiness reported.

Meanwhile, Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said on Wednesday night (December 2) that any “sideline talks” on the Syrian crisis in Saudi Arabia or Jordan constitute a violation of the Vienna agreement.

He further noted that such moves will only derail the political attempts meant to solve the Syrian conflict.
