PARIS - French President Nicolas Sarkozy, flanked by British Prime Minister David Cameron, urged Syrian opponents of President Bashar Assad on Friday to unite so that the outside world could help them overthrow him.
Sarkozy said the lack of unity among opposition groups was as much of a hurdle to resolving the crisis than opposition within the UN Security Council to taking action and warned that without a credible alternative the uprising would fail.
"The principle obstacle ... is not just the blockage at the U.N. In Libya we couldn't have had the revolution without the Libyans and we won't be able to have a Syrian revolution without the Syrian opposition making enough effort to unite that we can support them more," Sarkozy said.
