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

Kerry said in a surprise statement to reporters that 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.

Despite months of cajoling and negotiations, the Syrian opposition has yet to agree to sit down at the table with members of the Syrian regime of President Bashar al-Assad to chart a path to end the war.
