BBC News – John Kerry urges Syria opposition to attend talks

US Secretary of State John Kerry has urged Syria’s opposition to join next week’s peace talks.

The main political opposition group, the Syrian National Coalition, meets in Istanbul on Friday to vote on whether to go to the talks.

Mr Kerry stressed the aim of the so-called Geneva II talks was to begin the process of setting up a transitional government to end the war in Syria.

The three-year conflict has claimed the lives of more than 100,000 people.
