Opposition coalition finally decides to attend peace conference

The main, western-backed Syrian opposition group has voted in favor of attending next week's peace conference dubbed "Geneva-2" .

The opposition coalition's media office said that of 73 voters on Saturday, 58 voted in favor of attending the conference.

The Coalition was under huge pressure from its Western and Arab sponsors to attend the peace talks, scheduled to open Wednesday in the Swiss city of Montreux.

Many Coalition members were hesitant to attend a conference that has little chance of success and will burn the last shred of credibility the group has with powerful militants on the ground, who reject the talks.

The Syrian government has already said it will attend the talks.
