WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The United States is compiling a list of opposition groups that will take part in the political transition process in Syria, White House National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes said in a press briefing on Thursday.

"We are identifying the list of those opposition groups and figures who will participate in the negotiations with the Assad regime," Rhodes stated.

On November 4, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov expressed hope that a list of the so-called moderate Syrian opposition groups ready to sit down at the negotiating table would appear soon.
