Morocco: 'Friends of Syria' Set for Marrakech

The "Friends of Syria" group will meet in Morocco on Wednesday, AFP reported on Monday (December 10th). Arab and Western states will consider two key issues concerning the 21-month Syria conflict: the political transition in the event of President Bashar al-Assad's exit, and the mobilisation of humanitarian aid as winter sets in.

More than 100 delegations are expected to attend the Marrakech event.

Wednesday's meeting will reportedly address ways of supporting the National Coalition. The Gulf Co-operation Council, France, Britain and Turkey have all formally recognised the coalition as the sole legitimate representative of the Syrian people.
