Syria's parliamentary speaker urged France "not to hasten" to act against Damascus, in a statement to the French parliament ahead of a planned debate on France's possible involvement in US-led military action.

"Syrian lawmakers are determined to get to the truth... and we ask you not to hasten to commit a heinous, senseless crime, as you must steer the French republic away from the war path and towards diplomacy," Jihad Lahham said, according to official Syrian news agency SANA.
