UK cannot rule out providing arms to Syrian opposition: Hague
London: British Foreign Secretary William Hague has said that his country cannot rule out providing arms to the Syrian opposition in the future.
Hague stressed that the situation in Syria now is "too dangerous to the peace and security of that entire region, and thereby to the world, to ignore it.”
Suring an interview with the BBC, Hague said the package would be given "directly to the opposition" and would include "more equipment to help save lives".
He added that he would not be announcing a provision of arms this week, but he could not "rule anything out for the future,” the report said.
According to the report, his words come after Syrian President Bashar al-Assad accused Britain in the Sunday Times of bullying and naivety over the conflict in his country.
Assad dismissed any suggestion that Britain could help to resolve the conflict in Syria.
