UNITED NATIONS - France will discuss with its partners in the coming days a proposal by Turkey and members of the Syrian opposition for a no-fly zone in northern Syria, French President Francois Hollande said on Monday.

"(French Foreign Minister) Laurent Fabius in the coming days will look at what the demarcation would be, how this zone could be secured and what our partners think," he told reporters on the sidelines of the annual gathering of world leaders at the United Nations General Assembly.

"We are studying this proposal," Hollande said, adding that the Syrian refugees coming to Europe could return to the no-fly zone. "It could find a place in a Security Council resolution that would give international legitimacy to what's happening in this zone."
