National Coalition Recognized As Syrian Representative
December 13 , 2012
At a ‘Friends of Syria’ meeting in Morocco, National Coalition was recognized as the sole representative of the Syrian populace by almost 100 Western and Arab nations. The Opposition also urged the US to review its blacklist of jihadist rebels. The Moroccan Foreign Minister Saad Eddine El Othmani said "Today, full recognition is given to the National Coalition as the sole representative of the Syrian people". This comes just after about a day of the US President Obama endorsing the National Coalition. The EU has also formally recognized the Syrian opposition.
