This wasn't a peace conference, it was a military planning session, like the many that took place on DS9 during the war. A peace conference is a political affair, with both sides representing many interests that may not be in concert with one another, let alone with the goal of the conference. A war conference is a military affair, each side having objectives unified by the chain of command.

And the Romulans still have a substantial fleet, as we've seen. Their homeworld's destruction wiped out much of the civilian population, but their fleet was in a good position to move out of the way, so much of it still survives, and it's proven itself easily able to pose a viable threat to its neighbors.
