UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon will announce Friday that a new Syria peace conference will be held in Geneva in mid-November, UN diplomats told AFP.
"Ban will announce that there is a tentative date for mid-November," one diplomat said.
Other envoys confirmed the date after a meeting between Ban and foreign ministers from Britain, China, France, Russia and the United States on the Syrian crisis.
A first peace conference was held in June 2012 but there has been no follow up because of divisions in the Syrian opposition and the international community.
