BEIRUT - Two leading Syrian opposition parties have agreed a road map to democracy if mass protests succeed in toppling President Bashar Assad, according to a copy of the document seen by Reuters.

The leading opposition group in exile, the Syrian National Council (SNC), signed the deal with the National Coordination Committee, a group whose majority is inside Syria and which had disagreed with the SNC's calls for foreign intervention.

Under their pact, the two sides "reject any military intervention that harms the sovereignty or stability of the country, without considering Arab intervention to be foreign."
