Hague: "We'd all be very reluctant to arm Syrian rebels ..."

(Reuters) - "Britain said on Sunday it and other countries were "very reluctant" to arm rebels in Syria ... "People have understandable concerns about the idea of sending arms to anybody in Syria and we'd all be very reluctant to do that," he said.....
Hague said he was gloomy about the prospect of a Geneva peace conference.
"The regime has gained ground. That makes the Geneva conference harder to bring about and to make a success. It makes it less likely that the regime will make enough concessions in such negotiations, and it makes it harder to get the opposition to come to the negotiations.
"They're not coming together in the next couple of weeks. I find that worrying and depressing," he added...."
