"The conference has been postponed and no new date has been set. I cannot reveal the reasons at this time and I do not exclude its cancellation," National Coalition member Samir Nashar told AFP on Thursday.
"We agreed to form a government to run the affairs of liberated areas," National Coalition spokesman Walid al-Bunni said last week, adding the Istanbul meeting would decide on the composition of a government and choose a head.
Bunni said it was hoped the government would be based in rebel-held territory of northern Syria.
