New Delhi, Oct 21 : With NATO operations in Libya coming to an end with the killing of Muammar Gaddafi, France today said Syria could be the next target as it pushed for UN taking the “responsibilities” and sanction the “bloody repression”.

However, France did not intend to launch unilateral military action against Syria but strictly follow international law in this regard, French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe said.

With the death of Gaddafi, NATO operations in Libya can be considered over and the new government there was in control of the entire country, Juppe said here.

“Turning to Syria, given the crimes against humanity committed by the Gaddafi regime, France is asking the UN Security Council to assume its responsibilities and sanction the bloody repression,” he said in a speech at the French Embassy here.

“I hope we will soon reach an agreement on multilateral action that can step up pressure on the Syrian regime,” Juppe said.
