"We confirm this invitation (to Syria) was sent, like others, last week," Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Pascale Andreani said in remarks to Kuwait News Agency (KUNA).

The French official said France "is awaiting all of the responses and is confident there will be a strong participation by the international community."

Initially, France said that it hoped around 80 participants would come here in two weeks time to raise an unspecified amount of grants, which will be used to support the Palestinian economic reform plan of the government of Salam Fayyad.
