Syria's opposition wants a political transition without President Bashar al-Assad, said Riad Hijab, who was chosen by Syrian opposition groups as coordinator of a negotiating body to lead future peace talks.

Hijab, elected by members of the body set up in Saudi Arabia last week to represent them in the conflict's peace process, said Security Council resolutions affirmed a transition without the president and a transitional governing council with full executive powers.

"We are going into negotiations on this principle, we are not entering talks (based on) anything else. There will be no concession," he told reporters on Friday.
