PARIS (Reuters) - France said on Monday it was confident that a deal could be reached with Russia on a U.N. resolution over Syria's chemical weapons program.

French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius told RTL radio that the U.N. inspectors report regarding an August 21 chemical attack that was published on Monday showed there was "no doubt" the Syrian government was behind it.
