French President Francois Hollande said on Saturday he would try again to convince Russia and China to support harder sanctions against Syrian President Bashar Assad in order to break a diplomatic deadlock and prevent more bloodshed.

"I will once more address Russia and China so that they recognize there would be chaos and civil war if Bashar Assad isn't soon stopped," Hollande said, speaking to the press.

"The regime of Bashar Assad knows it is doomed and so it will use force until the very end," he said. "The role of the member states of the UN Security Council is to step in as quickly as possible."
