French FM: No Syria resolution in UN a 'scandal'
French foreign minister describes lack of UN Security Council resolution on Syria as 'scandal'
By The Associated Press

CANBERRA, Australia (AP) ' French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe has increased pressure on Russia to support a U.N. Security Council resolution against the Syrian regime. He describes the lack of such a clear statement of condemnation as a "scandal."

Juppe said during a visit to the Australian capital Canberra on Sunday that Russia and France remained divided over Syria following talks between French and Russian foreign and defense ministers in Moscow last week.

Veto-wielding Russia wants Syrian President Bashar Assad's government to halt its violence against protesters and to expedite reforms.

But Juppe says "the regime has lost its legitimacy" and "it's too late to implement a program of reform."
