PARIS -(Dow Jones)- French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe Sunday said he regrets Russia's and China's veto threat to a United Nations Security Council's resolution to authorize an intervention in Syria.
France and other countries haven't submitted any resolution on Syria to the Security Council, as they expect the action to be blocked.
"I regret the repression continues unleashed in conditions that threaten the region's security," Juppe said in an interview with French TV cable news channel LCI.
He said France is working with other countries in the UN's Security Council to secure an agreement in favor of an intervention in Syria, Juppe said.
