TUNIS - Western and Arab powers will probably recognize the Syrian National Council as the legitimate representative of the Syrian people during the next meeting of the "Friends of Syria" group in Turkey, the Tunisian foreign minister said.

Rafik Abdessalem, who chaired Friday's inaugural "Friends of Syria" meeting in the Tunisian capital, said of the recognition issue: "We have gone half the way and we will probably do the other half in Turkey."

He also said Friday's meeting had backed an Arab League demand for a joint Arab and United Nations force to help end the violence in Syria. However, this point was not included in the meeting's final communique.
