PARIS - France's Foreign Minister Alain Juppe will address the UN Security Council in New York on Tuesday in an effort to push through an Arab League resolution for a political transition in Syria.

"The minister will be in New York on Tuesday to convince the Security Council to meet its responsibilities as the crimes against humanity committed by the regime get worse," Foreign Ministry spokesman Bernard Valero said on Monday.

Arab League chief Nabil Elaraby left for New York on Sunday where he will brief representatives of the Security Council on Tuesday, seeking support for the Arab peace plan.
