Special Envoy of UN Secretary General Geir Pedersen will arrive in Riyadh on Saturday, where he will meet with leaders of the opposition Syrian Negotiating Committee (SNC). According to Al Arabiya TV channel, he will discuss with the Syrian opposition the preparations for the first meeting of the Constitutional Committee, which will be held in Geneva on October 29-30.

A meeting of the SNC was held in the Saudi capital this week, at which the head of the opposition delegation was elected to take part in the committee. It was Hadi al-Bahra, who headed the National Coalition of Opposition and Revolutionary Forces (NCORF) in 2014.
