France intends to present a draft resolution before the United Nations Security Council setting Syria a 15-day ultimatum to declare its chemical weapons programme.

Failure to comply would result in possible punitive measures.

As Syria’s former colonial power, France has been leading the tough talking on the chemical weapons issue. Its government says it is keen to act quickly in response to the Russian

initiative, suspicious the move could be a delaying tactic.

The draft also makes clear the Security Council should consider the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad as responsible for the gas attack on August 21 that according to the

US killed over 1400 men woman and children.

Russia is expected to object to the resolution.
