BEIRUT - Syria's Foreign Minister Walid al-Moualem said on Monday rebel fighters had little prospect of matching the power of President Bashar Assad's army despite Western and Arab pledges to send them weapons.

"If they expect or fantasize that they can create a balance of power, I think they will need to wait years for that to happen," Moualem told a televised news conference in the Syrian capital Damascus, monitored in Beirut.
