PARIS: The "Friends of Syria" grouping of countries that support the opposition will hold talks in Paris on Sunday, a French diplomatic source said Wednesday, ahead of peace talks slated for later this month.

The foreign ministers of the United States, Britain, France, Germany, Saudi Arabia and Qatar will be present, among others, as will Ahmad Jarba, head of Syria's opposition National Coalition which has yet to decide whether it will take part in UN-backed peace talks planned for January 22 near Geneva, the source added.
