Officials say the European Union has agreed that the 21 August chemical attack outside Damascus appears to have been the work of Syria's regime, but that any potential military attack against it should wait for the U.N. inspectors' report.

EU High Representative Catherine Ashton and French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius told reporters that Saturday after a meeting by the bloc's foreign ministers in Lithuania.

France had already said it would wait for the U.N. inspectors' report before deciding to intervene militarily, even though it said the report would only show a chemical attack had taken place, not apportion blame.

Addressing the joint EU position, Fabius said: "It is said that all indications converge toward the fact that the regime is responsible."
