Emmanuel Macron to propose reorganization of Islam in France

"If we have proven evidence that chemical weapons proscribed in treaties are used, we will strike the place where they are made".

But Macron said that the evidence so far is not conclusive on WMD use by Damascus and he said that proof of chemical weapons use is "no established" as yet by French intelligence and military agencies.

"As soon as such proof is established, I will do what I said", Macron warned, while adding that "the priority is the fight against the terrorists, the jihadists".

Macron spoke by phone to Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday and urged him to call on the Assad regime to "put an end to the unsustainable deterioration of the humanitarian situation in Eastern Ghouta and Idlib".

Critics who accuse Macron of inaction say he has not given a clear definition of whether use of chlorine would for him constitute a chemical attack.

Last week, Defence Minister Florence Parly appeared to cast doubt on the scope of the plan, saying it would "probably not be obligatory".

Syria signed the worldwide treaty banning chemical weapons and allowed monitors to destroy its poison gas arsenal after an agreement reached in 2013 to avert United States retaliation for what Washington said was a nerve gas attack near Damascus that killed more than 1,000 people.
