CAIRO - British Foreign Secretary William Hague said on Tuesday the new Syrian opposition coalition was an important step forward but more needed to be done before Britain formally recognized it.

"It is a very important milestone," Hague told reporters at a meeting of Arab and European ministers at the headquarters of the Arab League in Cairo.

"We want to see the Syrian opposition be inclusive ... and have support inside Syria and if they have this, yes, we will then recognize them as the legitimate representative of the Syrian people."
