Talks on the Syrian conflict in Vienna this weekend will focus on deciding which opposition groups should negotiate with President Bashar Assad's government and which should be designated as terrorists, sources said Wednesday.The discussions will bring together around 20 countries and international bodies to hammer out a road-map for peace to end Syria's more than four-year civil war, and diplomats said working level talks are set to begin in advance Thursday. Moscow said they are aimed at stopping terrorists in the country, but Western powers have accused Russia of trying to help Assad's forces and the intervention has further soured already tense relations between the two sides.Russia has submitted a 38-person list, including three former heads of the exiled opposition National Coalition and its current president, Khaled al-Khoja, according to the Western source.Neither representatives of the Syrian government nor opposition groups are expected to attend this stage of the dialogue, and a member of the National Coalition criticized the process.
