ISTANBUL - Western and Arab nations called on UN-Arab League special envoy Kofi Annan on Sunday to determine a timeline for next steps to persuade President Bashar Assad to end the conflict in Syria, including a return to the UN Security Council, if the killing continues.

The "Friends of Syria" also said, in a final communique obtained by Reuters, that the window of opportunity for Assad to meet his commitments was not open-ended.

The group also recognized the Syrian National Council as a legitimate representative of all Syrians, and the main opposition interlocutor with the international community.
