European Union Welcomes New Syrian Opposition Council


Luxembourg : The European Union has welcomed a newly formed Syrian opposition council, which seems to be inline with Libyan Oppositon group, astonishingly EU stopped short of recognizing the body, which is seeking international support for a six-month-old uprising against President Bashar al-Assad. 

European foreign ministers meeting in Luxembourg called the creation of the Syrian National Council “a positive step forward.” A member of the council’s executive committee said Monday that the group was seeking recognition as representing the Syrian opposition but had no interest in becoming an alternative government. 

Syrian Government has threatened to retaliate against any government that recognized the council.
