The European Union endorseda newly formed Syrian opposition group, considering them the legitimate represenatatives of the Syrian people on Monday, the Associated Press reports:
"The EU considers them legitimate representatives of the aspirations of the Syrian people," the bloc's 27 foreign ministers said in a statement at the end of their monthly meeting. They stopped short of offering official diplomatic recognition because that can only be decided by each member country individually.
