ANKARA/GENEVA - A UN plan towards ending the civil war in Syria would not work in its current form, Syria's western-backed opposition and rebel groups said in a rare show of unity on Saturday, a day after the government said it was ready to take part in the initiative.

In July, UN special envoy to Syria Staffan De Mistura unveiled the idea of inviting warring parties to form four UN-led working groups on how to implement a roadmap to peace, since the groups were not ready to hold formal peace talks.

In a rare instance of the coalition's political and military components finding agreement, the statement was signed by the political offices of powerful Islamist factions such as Ahrar Al Sham and those backed by the United States, such as Division 101.
