Syrian opposition representatives including Free Syrian Army (FSA) military commander Salim Idriss will pay a visit to the UN next week.

According to the diplomatic sources, Syrian opposition leaders are expected to hold an unofficial meeting with UN Security Council (UNSC) members.

While the names of the participants and details of their program were yet unknown, they aim convincing the UNSC to take action against Russia and China's support towards the Assad regime, said the sources.

US State Department spokesperson Marie Harf told the journalists that Syrian opposition had plans to visit New York, but not Washington.

UNSC failed to take action in the solution of Syrian crisis in the past two years. Three draft resolutions were vetoed by Russia and China.

Lately, UNSC failed to approve a statement calling on the Syrian government to allow immediate access to 2,500 civilians trapped in the besieged city of Homs, where pro-regime troops have launched a major offensive to rebels from the opposition stronghold, as Russia intended to amend some of the articles.
