British Foreign Secretary William Hague said here Wednesday that his country will seek to lift a ban on providing the Syrian rebels with weapons.

Speaking at a joint press conference with Jordan’s Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh, Hague said “the UK and France seek to end the ban on arming Syrian rebels. Any decision to be taken will be discussed with the Syrian National Coalition and in cooperation with other entities.”

Hague stressed that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad cannot be part of a solution to the Syrian crisis.

“We want a solution without Assad. We do not accept the stay of Assad,” Hague said ahead of the “Friends of Syria” meeting slated to open soon in Amman.

For his part, Judeh reiterated Jordan’s support for a political solution to bring an end to the Syrian conflict and maintain stability and security in the war-torn country.

With the participation of Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Egypt, the United States, Britain, France, Turkey, Germany and Italy, the Friends of Syria meeting is expected to discuss the recent U.S.-Russian efforts to revive political options for solving the Syrian crisis, with the focus on coordinating efforts in light of the latest developments in Syria.
