The head of the main Syrian opposition group is criticizing U.S. officials for saying it was premature to speak about a provisional Syrian government.
Abdelbaset Sieda of the Syrian National Council says the opposition is making "serious" preparations and consultations to announce a transitional government but admits it is not imminent.
French President Francoise Hollande called on the Syrian opposition Monday to quickly form a provisional government, saying France would recognize it.
U.S. officials called it premature because the opposition is too fragmented.
In a telephone interview with The Associated Press, Sieda said Tuesday the U.S. comments show the international community "is not ready" to take decisive decisions when it comes to Syria.
