BEIRUT - A leader of the main Syrian opposition group says the group shares the priorities of the new U.S. administration to fight the Islamic State group and contain Iran.

Nasr Hariri, in an exclusive interview with The Associated Press in Geneva says: "We have a lot of points that we share with this new administration of America," said Hariri. "On the top of these priorities is fighting terrorism."

He said members of the Trump team met with members of the main Syrian opposition before and after he was elected in a bid to find common ground.

U.N. Syria envoy Staffan De Mistura is holding a third day of meetings in Geneva with government and opposition delegations in a bid to find a political solution to Syria's six-year war.
