French President Francois Hollande said Friday he would
wait for a UN report on last month's chemical attack before taking a final
decision on action against Syria.
Speaking at the end of the G20 summit in St Petersburg, Hollande said: "We will now wait for the decision of Congress, the American Senate and House of Representatives, then the (UN) inspectors report. I will then have to take a decision, in view of these elements."
France is the only country that has said it would join the United States in military strikes against the Syrian regime.
Hollande said that waiting on the UN report would help mobilize more support for a coalition and promised to address the French people when he had taken his decision.
