Lebanese Foreign Minister Adnan Mansour said Tuesday that his country had not yet received a formal invitation to attend the Geneva II conference on the Syria crisis, slated for later this month.

"Lebanon hasn't received anything to this effect," Mansour told Anadolu Agency.

He confirmed, however, that his country nevertheless planned to take part in the event.

The Geneva II conference, set to kick off on January 22, is ostensibly aimed at resolving the ongoing crisis in violence-wracked Syria.

Syria has been in the throes of conflict since 2011 when a peaceful uprising against President Bashar al-Assad escalated into civil war following a violent government crackdown.

According to the UN, more than 100,000 people have been killed in the conflict to date.
