AMMAN - The Syrian opposition to President Bashar Assad will reject a Russian-sponsored congress of Syrian groups, which amounts to a meeting of "the regime with the regime", a prominent opposition official told Reuters on Wednesday.

The opposition High Negotiations Committee (HNC) was surprised it had been mentioned in a list of groups invited to the congress scheduled for November 18 in Sochi and would "issue a statement with other parties setting out the general position rejecting this conference", said Mohammad Alloush, an HNC member.
