Making a guest appearance on the television show "Ça vous regarde" (It’s your business) (LCP), former French Foreign Minister Roland Dumas said he was sounded out by the British in 2010—that is to say before the "Arab Spring"—to support a war against Syria, in Israel’s interest.

The revelations made by Dumas would seem to confirm our hypothesis that the attack on Syria was envisaged by the secret clauses of the Treaty of Lancaster House on November 2, 2010. This document, purported to be a framework for Franco-British military cooperation, included secret clauses relating to the attack on Libya. However, we have always pointed out that the wars on Libya and Syria were planned simultaneously. - Roland Dumas: 'UK government prepared war in Syria two years before 2011 protests'
