Austria: EU governments fail to reach deal on Syria arms embargo

European Union governments have failed to reach an agreement on easing an arms embargo on Syria to help rebels fighting President Bashar Assad, Austrian Foreign Minister Michael Spindelegger said on Monday.

 

EU foreign ministers met in Brussels on Monday to bridge their differences over the issue, with Britain and France pushing to allow European governments to deliver arms. Austria and several other EU capitals oppose such moves. (Reuters)
