Representatives of the opposition are scheduled to meet in Cairo this week to discuss expanding their delegation at the next round of Geneva II talks, according to the head of an officially tolerated opposition group.National Coalition president Ahmad Jarba favored the inclusion of NCB representatives in a united opposition delegation, but was roundly criticized by his colleagues for the move, Abdel-Azim said.Abdel-Azim said this week's proposed talks in Cairo should focus on expanding the opposition delegation so that it represents at least four major currents: the National Coalition, the NCB, Kurdish groups, and "independent" opposition figures, who could include people who have resigned from the coalition.The NCB is classified as an officially tolerated group and is criticized for being too close to the regime by some in the ranks of the opposition, but some of its members have been arrested by the authorities.
