British FM says `no decision` on arming Syria rebels
Doha: British Foreign Secretary William Hague said on Saturday that his government had taken "no decision" to provide arms to Syrian rebels, ahead of a "Friends of Syria" meeting expected to discuss military aid.
"On the much debated question of whether we should give lethal aid of any kind to the Syrian opposition, the position remains the same -- we have taken no decision to do that," he told reporters in the Qatari capital Doha.
Hague said any such decision would have to be debated in parliament.
He said that Britain`s main goals remain to "deliver more humanitarian aid" and "promote a political solution."
"At the end, there is only a political solution for the conflict. We want to see a successful conference in Geneva," he said, referring to a joint US and Russian proposal for a peace conference in the Swiss city.
