BEIJING - China said on Friday it had yet to receive a formal invitation to a meeting of international powers in Tunis next week to discuss the Syria crisis and so could not say if it would attend.

China and Russia infuriated Western and Arab states this month by blocking a draft UN Security Council resolution that backed an Arab plan urging Syrian President Bashar Assad to quit amid his government's violent crackdown on opposition groups.

The Feb. 24 meeting in Tunis is part of a newly created "Friends of Syria Group" aimed at trying to find a way of peacefully ending the conflict.

It will be attended by US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and European and Arab League foreign ministers.
