First in Europe: France recognizes Syrian opposition

Published: 11.13.12, 20:43 / Israel News

France said on Tuesday it recognizes Syria's newly formed opposition coalition as the legitimate representative of the Syrian people, becoming the first European nation to do so. Syrian opposition groups struck a deal in Doha on Sunday to form a broad coalition to overthrow President Bashar al-Assad.

 

"France recognizes the Syrian National Council as the sole legitimate representative of the Syrian people and as future government of a democratic Syria allowing to bring an end to Bashar al-Assad's regime," Hollande told a news conference in Paris. (Reuters)
