ANKARA - Syria's main political opposition in exile said on Monday it would decide whether to attend the Geneva 2 conference in Switzerland after an announcement by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Iran's attendance at the talks.

"It is expected that the Secretary-General of the UN will be holding a press conference during the next few hours in order to show the position of the United Nations from the invitation sent to Iran to attend Geneva 2," the National Coalition's statement said. "The Coalition will send its final position on the basis of the statement of the Secretary-General."

The National Coalition had said it would pull out of the talks scheduled this week unless Ban revoked his invitation to Iran, President Bashar Assad's main backer, setting a deadline of 1900 GMT for the invitation to be withdrawn.
