|France ready to join United States for military strike on Syria which could started Wednesday.|
French President Francois Hollande said a military strike on Syria could come by Wednesday and that Britain's surprise rejection of armed intervention would not affect his government's stand. "France wants firm and proportionate action against the Damasacus regime," he said in an interview to Le Monde daily on Friday. The French parliament is due to meet on Wednesday for an emergency Syria session.
France's President Francois Hollande said "France wants firm and proportionate action against the Damasacus regime."
France announced that its armed forces "have been put in position to respond" if President Francois Hollande decides on military action.
He does not need French parliamentary approval to launch military action that lasts less than four months.
