States ready to recognize Syrian opposition council

Representatives of Syria's main opposition grouping said there were several Arab and foreign countries ready to recognize their Syrian National Council, the founding statement of which they officially released on Sunday, DPA reported.

The council "is a frame for the opposition and the peaceful revolution and represents the revolution inside and outside," Burhan Ghalioun, the chairman of the 140-member council, told reporters in Istanbul.

Ghalioun said he had no worries about gaining the support of the international community and that the council expected to have a busy schedule of meetings with friendly countries.

The Syrian National Council was first founded in the Turkish city in late August.
