CAIRO, Oct. 31 (Xinhua) -- Egypt is planning to hold a meeting among the Syrian opposition groups in Cairo to reach a coordinated and united vision for the Syrian crisis, Egypt's Foreign Minister Mohamed Amr said Wednesday.
"There are constant communications with the Syrian opposition groups either in Cairo, or via our missions abroad, but the date of the meeting hasn't been scheduled yet," official news agency MENA quoted Amr as saying during a press conference.
He added the meeting will be organized by the Egyptian side in collaboration with the Arab League (AL).
A cease-fire initiative has been put forward by UN-AL joint special representative to Syria Lakhdar Brahimi, who pushed the conflicting parties in Syria to observe a truce during the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha.
Brahimi's truce, which supposedly went into effect last Friday, has been strained by consistent fighting between rebels and government forces.
