The Syrian National Council (SNC) argued that the United States was not involved in the organization of a congress to be attended by all Syrian opposition groups in Doha, Qatar on November 8.
The United States called on Wednesday for an overhaul of Syria's opposition leadership with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton signaling a more active stance by Washington in attempts to form another political opposition to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
Clinton's comments represented a clear break with the Syrian National Council (SNC), a largely foreign-based group which has been among the most vocal proponents of international intervention in the Syrian conflict.
Speaking to the Anadolu Agency (AA), SNC's spokesperson Muhammad Sirmini said that the decision to hold the Doha congress was that of the Syrians and the United States did not impose anything.
Sirmini criticized the remarks of US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on the Doha congress.
"Clinton's remarks have disregarded the decision of the Syrian people. Such a case is unacceptable," Sirmini noted.
A political adviser for the Free Syrian Army (FSA), Bessam ed-Dade called on the SNC to make a statement condemning Clinton's words.
