French President Francois Hollande asked Pope Francis receive a delegation from Syria's main opposition groups on Friday to the Vatican, AFP reported.

Hollande is currently on a diplomatic visit to Rome.

"I expressed my desire that the Vatican could host the Syrian National Coalition," Hollande announced after the meeting.

"The Geneva II conference should be aimed at transition. We need to do everything to stop the fighting and dispatch humanitarian aid."
