Britain's deputy prime minister on Sunday stressed the conflict in Syria is a civil war, telling he BBC's Andrew Marr show that no UK decision on arming the rebels appeared imminent.

Nick Clegg, leader of the Liberal Democrats and part of the government coalition told Marr: "At this point we're not providing arms. If we wanted to, we would do it. We clearly don't think it is the right thing to do now or else we would have decided to do it."

"Such a move would not be acceptable to the British people," Clegg said on the public opinion over intervention in Syria.
