Time has come to increase sanctions against Syria: France
French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe said on Friday that the "time has come to increase sanctions" against the Syrian regime.
"The situation is no longer sustainable," and "the ongoing repression is unacceptable," Juppe told reporters during a visit to Ankara.
"It is not normal that the (UN) Security Council has not made any decision so far," said Juppe. "I hope those blocking any resolution will be aware of the reality of the situation."
