Syria's main opposition group on Tuesday demanded a swift international response following the U.N. report confirming the use of chemical weapons in Syria, while Damascus slammed the U.S., British and French foreign ministers, accusing them of trying to impose their agenda on the Syrian people.

The Foreign Ministry statement appeared to be in response to demands by foreign ministers of France, Britain and the U.S. that Syrian President Bashar Assad step down even as the West increases efforts to bring the warring sides to an international peace conference.
