Syrian refugees in Lebanon have expressed little hope that a political solution can be achieved at the peace negotiations being held in Geneva this week, ambivalent over whether the Syrian regime is willing and the opposition groups are able to compromise on a solution.The High Negotiations Committee – the main bloc of the Syrian opposition groups – announced Friday it would join the peace negotiations after some hesitation, though they reiterated that the regime must halt all sieges and bombardments on civilian areas to pave the way for a solution.He told The Daily Star that though the opposition did not represent him, they are necessary to achieve peace. He for one does not care what each negotiating party agrees upon, just as long as the war ends.Abu Khaled has a different opinion, blaming the regime for having no political will to end the war since it meant they would have to relinquish power after 46 years of family rule.Rights groups and the opposition contested the results, noting that any election that takes place during a conflict in which nearly half the population is displaced in neighboring countries is not a legitimate way to measure the will of the people.
