European Union foreign ministers have agreed not to renew the union's arms embargo on the Syrian opposition.

EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton said there was no immediate decision to send arms to Syrian rebels and all other sanctions remained in force.

The decision came after lengthy talks among divided ministers in Brussels.

A far-reaching package of sanctions against the government of Bashar al-Assad was due to expire on Saturday.
