PARIS - French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe expressed concern on Tuesday about the conditions under which Arab League peace monitors were working in Syria, saying it was crucial the Syrian authorities be prevented from hoodwinking them.

"The conditions under which this observer mission is able to operate at the moment need to be clarified. Do they truly have genuinely free access to information? We are waiting for the report they will produce in the coming days for more clarity," he said.

"It's vital that the truth be established, and ultimately that the regime is unable to hoodwink the observers on the ground," Juppe said in an interview on TV news channel i>tele.

The head of the Arab League has said its peace monitors are helping to ease a violent crackdown on anti-government protests in Syria, but they have also urged President Bashar Assad's government to carry out a peace plan in full.
