Cairo - Syria's opposition National Coalition decided on Friday to form a government to run areas of the country “liberated” by rebels and will meet in early March to name a prime minister, a spokesman said.

“We agreed to form a government to run the affairs of the liberated areas,” Walid al-Bonni said after a meeting in Cairo.

He added that the coalition would meet in Istanbul on March 2 to decide on the composition of the planned government and to choose its head. - Sapa-AFP
