Riyadh meeting meant to bring rebels around the table for talks

"There will be no one representing the Syrian government in the three-day talks in Riyadh hosted by Saudi Arabia. Saudi is a pivotal state in the region and for it to take this step something must have happened  This meeting though, is only for the Syrian opposition. The aim is to unify and hopefully agree on one document to be able to propose in the Vienna talks in January.
