France not ready to arm Syrian opposition: foreign minister

Marrakech, Morocco (Reuters) - French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said on Wednesday that it was too early for France to supply weapons to Syrian rebels trying to oust President Bashar al-Assad.

“For now we have decided not to move on this,” Fabius told reporters ahead of a Friends of Syria meeting in Morocco. “We shall see in the coming months.”
