No intervention in Syria without UN resolution: Sarkozy
A UN Security Council resolution would be required for any foreign intervention in Syria, President Nicolas Sarkozy said on Tuesday, as Italy and France called for an end the "violent repression".
"There is no question of doing anything there without a Security Council resolution," Sarkozy said at joint news conference with Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi after a summit in Rome between the two men.
"The situation is unacceptable... You cannot send in tanks and the army to put down protests. This brutality is unacceptable," he said.
"We are with the Arab people in their aspirations for freedom," he said.
