France's Hollande seeks coalition in favour of Syria action

ST. PETERSBURG, Russia: Leaders of G20
nations on Friday agreed chemical
weapons had been used in Syria but
disagreed on who was responsible for last
month's attack, French President Francois
Hollande said.
Hollande, whose country has pushed with
the United States for military strikes to
punish Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad, said
he would seek to bring together a
coalition of states in favour of such an
intervention if the U.N. Security Council
could not agree action.
"(In such a case) a broad coalition should
be formed and is being formed among all
those countries that do not accept that a
country, a regime, should use chemical
weapons," he told a news conference
after the summit.
