PARIS - France and Britain will call for a European Union meeting, possibly before the end of March, to discuss lifting the embargo on supplying arms to the Syrian opposition, France's foreign minister said on Thursday.

Speaking on France Info radio, Laurent Fabius said: "We have to go very fast. The Europeans are supposed to look at this question in several weeks, but we will ask with the British to bring forward that meeting."

When asked if France would arm the opposition if there was no international agreement, Fabius said: "To lift the embargo, yes exactly."
