An aide to Cameron said the move was intended to help unite the opposition and also was an acknowledgement that a protracted conflict had taken hold in Syria. However, British officials will not be giving military guidance.
"He (Hague) has authorised diplomats to have direct contact with military figures on the ground in order to better understand the actual situation and the relationship between political and armed opposition groups," Cameron's office said in a statement.
