France and Britain favour targeted strikes in Libya in case Moamer Kadhafi uses chemical wepaons or air strikes against his people, President Nicolas Sarkozy said Friday at an EU summit.

Sarkozy said Paris had "many reservations" on military or NATO intervention in Libya "because Arab revolutions belong to Arabs".

But he and British Prime Minister David Cameron were "ready on condition that the UN wishes, that the Arab League accepts and the Libyan opposition agrees, for targeted actions if Mr Kadhafi uses chemical weapons or air strikes against peaceful citizens".
