US diplomat John Kerry meets his Russian counterpart after trying to entice Syrian rebels into Geneva peace talks by vowing to exclude the Moscow-backed Damascus regime from any future transition government.

Kerry said he was "confident" the opposition would attend the upcoming talks in Switzerland, speaking after a meeting in Paris on Sunday with the "Friends of Syria" group of mainly Western and Gulf countries opposed to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

The meetings come as Assad's forces appear to make gains on the ground amid deadly internal fighting in the rebellion pitting the once-dominant Islamists against resurgent fighters from groups more palatable to the West.
