Syria's National Coalition will meet on August 3 and 5 in Istanbul, opposition sources told the AFP Thursday.
The opposition group will meet to discuss forming a provisional government, they said.
Ahmad Jarba, the new head of the Coalition who is in Paris his week meeting President Francois Hollande, said this week he hoped a provisional government would be announced "within a month".
Coalition Vice President Suheir Atassi, who is also in France at the moment, said the talks would "strengthen" the SNC'S position.
