U.N. must react firmly to any Syria violation: France

PARIS (Reuters) - Any violation of a U.N.-backed peace plan by Syria should be met with a swift and firm response by the United Nations Security Council, French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe said on Tuesday.

Addressing an international conference on Syria in the French capital, Juppe also said that Western sanctions on the country were having an effect and its foreign currency reserves had been halved.
