Syria

The French government's response to more US sanctions on Syria is less than enthusiastic:

"The French and American positions differ on the question of sanctions. The French position was made clear last October by the French President when he stated: 'As a general rule, France is very reserved--indeed hostile--to all sanctions because we have observed that, historically, they are not effective and create more difficulties than they resolve.'"
