PARIS (AP) -- France's foreign minister says the so-called Friends of Syria group believes the peace plan for Syria laid out by special envoy Kofi Annan is the "last chance" for the country to avoid civil war.
Alain Juppe made the comments Thursday after hosting 16 top diplomats to find ways to implement the six-point peace plan that has run aground amid continued violence in the Arab country.
Earlier, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton called for a new U.N. resolution authorizing an arms embargo and other stronger measures on Syria if it fails to abide by the U.N.-backed cease-fire.
Clinton stopped short of calling for outside military intervention in Syria but said the time has come to impose more consequential measures.
