France said on Monday it was maintaining its opposition to talks with President Bashar al-Assad a day after U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry raised the prospect of negotiations with the Syrian's Asad.

In response to Kerry's comments France's Foreign Ministry referred to comments by Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius at the end of February saying that talks had to include elements of the existing regime and opposition members that would pave the way to a unity government.

"It is clear that for us Bashar al-Assad cannot be included within this framework," the foreign ministry, said citing Fabius.
