Syria move hailed

RIYADH: The GCC yesterday officially recognised the Syrian National Coalition as the sole representative of the Syrian people. Secretary-general Dr Abdullatif Al Zayani said, in a statement, that the bloc would help the new entity achieve the aspirations and hopes of the Syrian people.

He hoped the recognition would fast-track political transition, stop the bloodshed, protect Syria's territorial integrity and pave the way towards building an inclusive nation for all its people.
