SILIVRI, Turkey - The main Syrian political opposition group in exile, the Syrian National Coalition, has agreed to attend internationally sponsored peace talks beginning in Switzerland next week, the Coalition's media office said on Saturday.

The "Geneva 2" talks with representatives from President Bashar Assad's government start in Montreux on Wednesday.

Out of around 73 Syrian National Coalition members who voted, 58 backed the motion to attend and 14 voted against. Another 44 had already withdrawn from the vote.
