LONDON - Britain wants stronger international pressure on Syria, including from Arab nations, over its crackdown on protesters, but rules out military intervention, UK Foreign Secretary William Hague said on Monday.

"We do want to see additional sanctions ... We want to see stronger international pressure all round. Of course, to be effective, that can't just be pressure from Western nations, that includes from Arab nations, it includes from Turkey," Hague told the BBC in an interview.

Seeking military action against Syria, even with UN authority, was "not a remote possibility," he said.
