PARIS: France has called together representatives of some 50 nations to coax them to make good on promises to help the Syrian opposition coalition, in need of funds to move forward in its bid to oust the regime of Bashar Assad.

French diplomatic officials say the Syrian National Coalition's legitimacy inside the country is at stake.

Two Coalition vice-presidents are to attend Monday's meeting with representatives of some 50 nations.

The Paris meeting takes place two days before a major donor conference in Kuwait. But promises made at a December meeting in Marrakech, Morocco, of the Friends of Syria group have not all materialized.
