French Interior Minister Manuel Valls said on Sunday France would not act alone in Syria but would await a decision by the US Congress on whether to launch an attack against the government of President Bashar Assad. "France can not go it alone," Valls told Europe 1 radio. "We need a coalition."
France's prime minister, Jean-Marc Ayrault, is scheduled to meet with the heads of the two houses of parliament and the opposition on Monday to discuss the Syrian situation ahead of a parliamentary debate on Wednesday. (Reuters)
