Hollande, Obama agree no tolerance on chemical weapons” use

PARIS: French and US Presidents, Francois Hollande and Barack Obama, agreed Friday the international community should not tolerate chemical weapons’ use.
Hollande and Obama, during a phone call, agreed to send a “strong message” to the Syrian president Bashar Al-Assad’s regime, the Elysees said in a statement.
They said they were highly confident that the Syrian regime was responsible for the chemical weapons’ attack against civilians in Ghouta, outside Damascus, last week that killed hundreds of people, it added.
The two leaders also asserted importance of punishing the Syrian regime for that crime.
Hollande did not rule out France’s participation in any possible military action against Syria but also said the military option did not aim at removing Al-Assad from power but punishing the regime for the use of chemical weapons.
The French leader said in an interview with Le Monde newspaper that his country could go ahead with plans to strike Syria for allegedly using chemical weapons.
President Obama said earlier that he was currently in the process of reviewing a limited air strike against Bashar Al-Assad’s regime, but he did not take a final decision yet.
