PARIS - Syria is heading for a humanitarian crisis and the EU, Arab League and Turkey must work together on how to deliver aid, French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe said on Tuesday.

Paris has proposed creating "humanitarian corridors" with Syrian approval or with an international mandate for shipping food and medicine to alleviate civilian suffering while Damascus cracks down on an uprising against President Bashar Assad.

"With every day that passes we are getting closer to a major humanitarian crisis," Juppe told lawmakers before a meeting of EU foreign ministers on Thursday.

"I will ask the European Union on Thursday to bring closer the Arab League, Turkey and the 27 (EU) member states to take initiatives in this direction," he said.
