PARIS - French President Nicolas Sarkozy said on Saturday Paris was consulting with Arab and European countries to create a Syrian contact group to find a solution to the crisis after Russia and China vetoed a resolution at the UN Security Council.

"France is not giving up," Sarkozy said in a statement.

"It is consulting with its Arab and European partners to create a 'Friends of the Syrian People Group' with the goal of giving international support to implement the Arab League transition plan."

Sarkozy added the states that had blocked the Security Council from passing a resolution on Syria were "encouraging the regime to continue with its cruel and endless policies."
