    Lesbos, Greece - World powers are meeting in Vienna on Saturday to discuss the ongoing conflict in Syria.

    It is the second round of this set of talks in the Austrian capital.

    Every two or three months, diplomats put on a conference or hold a meeting about Syria but refugees say it does not bring any peace to Syrians.

    The war in Syria has forced millions of people to flee the country.

    Some who are now on the Greek island of Lesbos shared their story with Al Jazeera.
