BEIJING (AFP) - French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe said he made little headway Tuesday in convincing Beijing to back a tough United Nations resolution condemning Syrias crackdown on pro-democracy protests. The visiting Juppe met his Chinese counterpart Yang Jiechi and discussed the need for a resolution condemning the military crackdown on protesters, he told journalists. But asked if he had the impression that Chinas position had changed, Juppe said: Not really. For weeks France and Britain have tried to get a UN resolution, but Moscow and Beijing, both veto-wielding members, and numerous other members of the Security Council have refused to come on board. I said that our relations are excellent, but this does not mean that we are in agreement on everything, Juppe said. The US said Monday it wanted stronger United Nations action on Syria and will push the Security Council for a resolution that has sanctions with teeth. Russia has opposed attempts by Western govts to push through a resolution directly targeting Syrian President, whose regime has waged a deadly six-month crackdown on protesters.
