Support growing for “strong” response to Syria, says French FM

International support is growing for a “strong” response to the alleged use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime, France’s foreign minister said on Saturday after talks with US counterpart John Kerry.

“There is wide and growing support,” Laurent Fabius told reporters in Paris. “Right now, seven of the eight countries in the G8 share our opinion on a strong reaction and 12 countries of the G20 also share this opinion.”
