UN-Arab League envoy Lakhdar Brahimi on Friday announced the list of delegations set to take part in next month's long-awaited Syria peace conference in Switzerland.
Wrangling continues over a potential role for Syria's staunch ally Iran, and the make-up of the Syrian government and rebel delegations is still to be announced, but the remaining players have been settled, Brahimi said.
The following is a list of the organisations and countries due to be involved:
United Nations, with Secretary General Ban Ki-moon as conference chairman
Permanent UN Security Council members Britain, China, France, Russia and the United States
Arab League head Nabil al-Arabi
European Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton
Organisation of Islamic Cooperation head Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu
United Arab Emirates
