    Kerry and Hijab are expected to discuss the Syria talks that are set to take place in Geneva at the end of January.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — US Secretary of State John Kerry will meet Riad Hijab, the opposition coordinator of the upcoming intra-Syria talks, on Saturday in Riyadh, a member of the Syrian National Coalition's political committee told Sputnik on Friday.

    "Tomorrow, Riyadh will host a meeting between Kerry and Saudi Foreign Minister [Adel] Jubeir. I think, after that [Kerry] will hold a meeting with the coordinator of the High Negotiations Committee [HNC] Riad Hijab," the National Coalition's Nasr Hariri said.

    The HNC, the body representing the Syrian opposition at the negotiations, was created in the Saudi capital of Riyadh in December.
