“Time was running out for the regime in Syria after the Arab League agreed sweeping sanctions against Damascus over its deadly crackdown on protesters,” French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe said Monday. "Its days are numbered, that is obvious. It is totally isolated today."

He told France Info radio that "things are going slowly unfortunately... but they are advancing since the Arab League, which carries considerable political weight, has just decided on some sanctions which will isolate the Syrian regime a bit more."

Last week, Juppe said France would ask its EU partners to consider setting up protected escape routes for Syrian opposition fleeing Syria but later said such a move would have to either be agreed by Damascus or come under an international mandate. "We have done this in other situations and it is the only way in the short term to ease the plight of the population," he said.
