TUNIS - Syria's main opposition Syrian National Council (SNC) called on the "Friends of Syria" on Friday to arm the Free Syrian Army, composed mainly of thousands of defectors, as well as all forms of popular resistance against Bashar Assad.

"If the regime fails to accept the terms of the political initiative outlined by the Arab League and end violence against citizens, the Friends of Syria should not constrain individual countries from aiding the Syrian opposition by means of military advisers, training and provision of arms to defend themselves," the SNC said in a seven-point statement of demands to the international meeting in Tunis.
