Kerry Invited Syrian Opposition to Rome Talks

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry urged members of the Syrian opposition to attend upcoming talks in Rome this week to help put an end to the bloody civil war. 

"We are not coming to Rome simply to talk," Kerry said at a joint news conference with Britain's Foreign Secretary William Hague. "We are coming to Rome to talk about next steps."

"This moment is ripe for us to be considering what more we can do," he said, adding that if the opposition wants results, "join us."

"We are determined that the Syrian opposition is not going to be dangling in the wind, wondering where the support is, if it is coming," he said. ""We are not going to let the Syrian opposition not have its ability to have its voice properly heard in this process," he said.
