Qatar has agreed to give US$20m to the Syrian opposition to help it form a transitional government.
Syrian National Coalition President Moaz Alkhatib visited Doha to secure Qatari financial support, but the establishment of a transitional government to run rebel-held areas has nevertheless been postponed until next month.
Financial stability is required to make a transitional government viable, but members of the coalition have opted to revisit the issue in about ten days, Reuters reported.
The Syrian opposition is meeting again on January 28 in Paris along with representatives from some 20 countries supporting its initiative.
Estimated US$40m a day is the budget needed by the transitional government to operate, according to a source quoted by Doha News.
