The opposition Syrian National Council is deliberating over whether to attend peace talks next month in Geneva.
The 28 ministers agreed that airstrikes in Syria were understandable and blamed Assad for chemical weapons attacks. The EU reached conclusions despite diverging opinions on how to work with Russia in peace talks.
The eighth round of UN-sponsored talks on Syria since 2012 is set to get underway in Geneva, though the Assad regime has not yet named a delegation. Talks hosted by Russia have led to hopes there may be a breakthrough.
The conference saw the Russian foreign minister being heckled and the Syrian opposition refusing to leave the airport. But the event ended with a plan to draft a new constitution as part of efforts to end the Syrian war.
A ceasefire has gone into effect in a rebel-held area near Damascus on the condition aid deliveries are made. The UN has called for Syria to be referred to the ICC for blocking aid and medical care to millions.
