The Syrian National Coalition's Monzer Akbik told Channel 4 News that despite the Government's defeat over military action "the UK is one of the important friends of the Syrian people".
He added: "There are many ways that the UK can help the Syrian people, by humanitarian aid, by helping build institutions, by helping the reconstruction of the country after all this destruction."
Earlier William Hague held talks with the Syrian National Coalition president Ahmad Al-Jarba in London and said the UK remained "fully behind" the opposition.
