UK's Cameron may veto EU arms embargo on Syria

World Bulletin / News Desk

Britain may consider vetoing an extension of the European Union's arms embargo on Syria if the situation does not improve there, Prime Minister David Cameron said Tuesday.

The EU has a blanket embargo against shipping arms to Syria, though last month Britain persuaded the EU to soften the embargo and allow member states to provide non-lethal aid, such as armored vehicles, to the rebels fighting the regime of President Bashar Assad.

Britain and France have signaled their support for lifting the embargo further to allow weapons into Syria. The current EU embargo expires in May.
