Neither Syria's main political opposition body nor representatives of the armed opposition have been invited to international talks on the country's war, an opposition politician and a rebel leader said.The Syrian government in Damascus has meanwhile yet to issue any official comment on the meeting in Vienna Friday that will bring together about a dozen countries including Saudi Arabia and Iran, which back opposing sides in the conflict.
