Syria's Minister for National Reconciliation said that the chemical weapons agreement between Russia and the US was a "victory", while France still demands President Bashar al-Assad be tried for war crimes
French President Francois Hollande has said that military strikes should not be taken off the table, despite praising the American-Russian agreement.
Speaking on French television today, Hollande said that if Syria does not comply with the accord to remove chemical weapons, military action must remain an option.
He will also have a brief meeting with Hague, Kerry and Fabius on Monday.
The politician said it was a "victory" for Damascus, won by its Russian allies, and had taken away the pretext for war.
US Secretary of State John Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov called on Saturday in Geneva on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to account for his chemical weapons within a week. The deal may avert U.S. military strikes.
"This agreement, an achievement of Russian diplomats and the Russian leadership, is a victory for Syria won thanks to our Russian friends," Ali Haidar told Russian news agency RIA.
"We welcome this agreement. From one point of view, it will help Syrians exit the crisis, from another, it has prevented a war against Syria, having taken away the pretext for one from those who wanted to unleash (it)," he said.
It was not clear if the comments by Ali Haidar, who is not in President Bashar al-Assad's inner circle of decision-makers, reflects the president's views.
Russia has been Assad's staunchest international ally, protecting him from three consecutive U.N. Security Council resolutions aimed at pressuring him to end a two-and-a-half-year conflict that has killed more than 100,000 people.
