(MENAFN - Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) Coming after similar decisions by the United States and Britain, France also intends to grant the opposition Syrian National Coalition (SNC) embassy status and provide it with a building in the French capital, official sources confirmed Wednesday.

The decision on the SNC getting an embassy here - France has already recognized its representative in Paris as an ambassador - was taken in talks Tuesday in Paris between SNC President Ahmad Al-Jarba and President Francois Hollande, accompanied by Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius.

"The President of the Republic confirmed yesterday that the ambassador of the Syrian National Coalition would have a building put at his disposal," French Foreign Ministry spokesman Romain Nadal indicated.

France has already halted all contacts with the Syrian regime's embassy in Paris and has withdrawn the French ambassador to Damascus, although diplomatic relations have not been totally severed.

The spokesman also indicated that France, along with other members of the "Friends of Syria Core Group" were "determined together to increase support for the moderate (Syrian) opposition, including for its military branch." Nadal stressed, however, that France would only supply "non-lethal equipment" to opposition fighters in line with commitments made within the European Union framework.
