Syria’s disparate opposition groups have put aside their differences to sign a coalition deal. The fractious members of the country’s opposition have finally agreed a framework for working together. The coalition will be headed by the leading Damascus cleric, Moaz al-Khatib.
Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davotoglu says there is now no excuse for the international community not to recognise the Syrian opposition.
The group, formed after a week of talks in Doha, will have two vice-presidents, including one woman.
Experts predict they will become the face and voice of the Syrian opposition in the coming months.
Euronews correspondent Maha Barada says the next conference is due in Morocco, where the new opposition body will be recognised as the sole and legitimate representative of the Syrian people. This, she says, will be a qualitative step on the opposition’s path to achieving its goals.
