ISTANBUL, April 20 (Reuters) - A Syrian rebel leader said on Saturday only force could end the country's two-year conflict and ruled out the possibility of any negotiation with President Bashar Assad's administration other than over its exit.

"There is no solution with this regime through negotiation. This (conflict) will not be settled other than by force," Brigadier Selim Idris, head of a military command, told reporters on the sidelines of a conference in Istanbul.

"Maybe in its final stages, when the regime feels it has lost everything, it might want to negotiate for its exit."
