Free Syrian Army: Rebels will not halt fighting for Geneva 2 talks

BEIRUT - The head of the Free Syrian Army said on Tuesday that rebel forces loyal to him would not join a planned peace conference in Switzerland in January and would continue their fight to topple President Bashar Assad throughout the talks.
"Conditions are not suitable for running the Geneva 2 talks at the given date, and we, as a military and revolutionary force, will not participate in the conference," General Salim Idriss told the pan-Arab news channel Al Jazeera."We will not stop combat at all during the Geneva conference or after it, and what concerns us is getting needed weapons for our fighters."
