(AP) French President Francois Hollande and the new Syrian opposition leader have announced plans to install a new ambassador to represent Syria in France.


The move came after talks Saturday at the presidential palace in Paris between Hollande and Moaz al-Khatib, head of the newly formed Syrian opposition coalition. France is the only Western country to have formally recognized the group as the representative of the Syrian people.


The new ambassador is Mounzir Makhous, an academic.
