U.S Secretary of State "John Kerry" and top envoys from 10 other countries are raising the pressure on Syria's main opposition group to attend peace talks that would bring it face-to-face with the Syrian government.
The two-day meeting begins Sunday in Paris, just a week before the scheduled talks in Geneva.
The Western-backed Oposition Coalition is nearing collapse, hampered by infighting, international pressure and disagreement over whether to negotiate with Syrian government.
The opposition militants find themselves battling on two fronts - against al-Qaida linked militants on one side and Syrian Army on another. But despite low expectations for the Geneva peace conference, diplomats say it is the only chance of ending fighting.
