The Friends of Syria group backing the opposition will convene Thursday to discuss its next steps in the wake of the opening of "a new page" in relations between the U.S. and National Coalition, and the resignation of the U.N.-Arab League envoy Lakhdar Brahimi.The Friends of Syria meeting also comes after National Coalition President Ahmad Jarba wound up an eight-day trip to the U.S., where he met with President Barack Obama and other senior American officials.After Brahimi's announcement Tuesday, Jarba and a Coalition delegation met with National Security Adviser Susan Rice for two hours, with the president joining the meeting for 30 minutes, a Coalition source said. The Coalition source said Jarba informed U.S. officials in detail about FSA units that are worthy of receiving stepped-up aid.
