CAIRO - Syria's ambassador to France denied in comments aired on Al Arabiya television on Tuesday that she had resigned in protest at a crackdown by President Bashar Assad's forces on anti-government protesters.

"I am still the Syrian ambassador, the ambassador of the Syrian Arab Republic," Lamia Chakkour said in a telephone interview with the Dubai-based satellite channel.

"This is a false impersonation. I did not talk to any channel in the world".
