Syrian opposition to boycott Geneva talks

Head of Syrian National Coalition says opposition will not participate until siege of Qusayr ends.

    Syria's opposition will not participate in proposed international peace talks in Geneva next month, its leader has said.

    George Sabra, the head of the Syrian National Coalition, on Thursday said the opposition was suspending their participation until the international community intervened to end the siege in Qusayr, a town in Homs province near the Lebanese border.

    "The National Coalition will not take part in any international conference or any such efforts so long as the militias of Iran and Hezbollah continue their invasion of Syria," Sabra told reporters in Istanbul.
