BRUSSELS - The European Union urged the Syrian opposition on Tuesday to work closely with the Arab League towards democratic transition and said anti-government groups needed an "inclusive" political platform.

The EU's foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton held talks on Tuesday with the Syrian National Council (SNC) as part of intensifying European contacts with opposition groups.

"She welcomed the ongoing efforts by the Syrian opposition to establish a united platform and to work for a shared vision for the future of Syria and the transition to a democratic system," Ashton's spokesman, Michael Mann, said.
