France - Syria peace process should begin under U.N. in Geneva, not Sochi

PARIS (Reuters) - France’s foreign minister said on Tuesday that a peace process for Syria should take place under U.N. auspices in Geneva and not under Russia in the Black Sea resort of Sochi where a Syrian congress began earlier in the day.

“The resolution of this crisis will happen urgently through a solution under United Nations auspices in Geneva. France has that as an immediate objective. It’s not happening in Sochi, it must happen in Geneva,” Jean-Yves Le Drian told lawmakers.
