French foreign minister Alain Juppe in a statement on Libya said: “In Europe we all have one common goal, this goal is Gaddafi's leaving power, because a regime that uses violence, bloodily cracks down on public protests loses its legitimacy. On this we agree. We disagreed on the means to use. I am not going back there.
"Today what is the situation? We are intensifying military pressure to destabilize Gaddafi's regime. You see the current operations."
France also joined Germany and Poland in pledging European Union support for sanctions against the Syrian regime after meeting in Poland.
