      Kerry Urges Syrian Opposition to Attend Geneva 2

      On the eve of a key meeting, United States Secretary of State John Kerry on Thursday made a powerful plea to the divided Syrian opposition to join landmark peace talks aimed at installing a new government.

      Next week's peace conference in Switzerland was "the best opportunity for the opposition to achieve the goals of the Syrian people and the revolution," Kerry said in a surprise statement to reporters, according to the AFP news agency.
