U.K.: EU Should Allow Weapons To Be Sent To Syrian Rebels, Foreign Secretary Says

The European Union should be prepared to amend its arms embargo on Syria to allow EU countries to supply Syrian rebel groups with weapons and to send a clear signal to the al Assad regime, British Foreign Secretary William Hague said May 27, Reuters reported. Hague added that if this amendment is not possible, each country could form its own sanctions policy. Though providing direct lethal aid to the rebels is one of the West's main options in affecting the outcome of the conflict, there is a concern that such weapons could have negative repercussions in a post-al Assad Syria.
