GENEVA: Syria's regime was forced to the negotiating table thanks to the actions of the country's rebels, who represent the true voice of the Syrian people, opposition spokesman Louay Safi said Friday.

"The fact that the regime has been forced come to Geneva -- this is the result of the fighting of the Syrian people," Safi told reporters after a week-long first round of peace talks wrapped up here.
