AMMAN, May 15 (Xinhua) -- Jordan's Minister of State for Media Affairs Mohammad al-Momani said Wednesday the Syrian opposition will not take part in the meeting of "Friends of Syria" group in Jordan, slated for next week.

Speaking at a press conference held here in Amman, the minister said "I have information that the Syrian opposition will not send representative to take part in the next week's meeting."

Al-Momani also underlined his country's stance calling for bringing a political solution to the Syrian crisis.

On Tuesday, Jordanian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Sabah Rafii said the "Friends of Syria" group will hold a meeting in Amman next week.

The meeting is expected to discuss the recent U.S.-Russian efforts to revive political options for solving the Syrian crisis, with the focus on coordinating efforts in light of the latest developments in Syria.

Foreign ministers of Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Egypt, the United States, Britain, France, Turkey, Germany and Italy are set to attend the meeting, she said.

As a neighbor of war-torn Syria, Jordan accommodates more than 530,000 Syrian refugees currently.
