The EU arms embargo on the Syrian opposition has ended but there is "no immediate decision" to supply weapons, William Hague said tonight.
Right EU decision tonight. Arms embargo on Syrian opposition ended. No immediate decision to send arms. Other sanctions remain

Foreign Secretary William Hague said a "clear message" had been sent to Assad's regime after the EU decided to lift the Syrian arms embargo.
