According to press reports, France has announced that 10 of the 15 members of the UN Security Council back a proposal of the Arab League for the Syrian head of state to step down.
For its part, Russia, a permanent member of the Security Council, is against the sanctions because it considers that the document is not balanced and opens the door for interference in the internal affairs of that territory. sgl/as/ajs/mgt/sc
