Cameron clarifies position on arming Syrian rebels

The Prime Minister confirmed that he was working to amend the EU embargo on arming Syrian rebels "so that we can give the opposition forces technical assistance" and "engage" with them.

"We haven't made a decision to arm the rebels," he added.

He also said that he supports a political peace process in Syria and that it was important for participants to "bring forward the necessary names for a transitional government".
