PARIS - European governments are discussing whether to expel Syrian ambassadors from their respective countries in response to an intensifying crackdown by President Bashar Assad on a revolt against his rule, a French official said on Tuesday.

France's ambassador to Damascus is returning to Paris on Tuesday after closing the embassy following President Nicolas Sarkozy's decision to cut its diplomatic presence in Syria.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Bernard Valero said Syria's ambassador to France had not been asked to leave yet, but talks were taking place to remove Syrian envoys from other European capitals.

"We are discussing it with the Europeans. At this stage we're not there yet," he said, adding that the decision could be taken on an individual country basis.
