ROME - French President Francois Hollande said on Thursday the G20 summit in Mexico next week would provide an opportunity to try to find a compromise with Russia for a political solution in Syria.




"There has to be with Russia at the G20 the search for a political solution ... that means a political transition," Hollande told a news conference after meeting Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti in Rome.


France said on Wednesday it wanted to place an Arab-League UN plan under the UN Chapter 7 charter, which allows sanctions and ultimately the use of military force.
