Britain is prepared to send arms to Syrian rebels should peace talks set for June fail to bring about an end to the conflict, The Financial Times reported on Friday, citing UK officials.

“The precise timing has not yet been finalized and no decision has yet been taken. But we are likely to be ... shipping arms to the rebels by August,” the Times quoted the official as saying.

“What I expect is that over the next two or three months western powers will move low-grade arms supplies in bulk to the rebels. The rebels need ammunition, and a lot of it, just to keep fighting,” the official added.
