TOKIO, August 30. (Itar-Tass). – The responsibility of aggravation of the situation in Syria lays on President Bashar Assad’s government. This point of view expressed on Friday Japan’s Foreign Affairs Minister Fumio Kishida to journalists after a ministerial meeting on the Syrian issue.
The Minister added that the probability of chemical weapons use in Syria is quite high, which is inadmissible.
Secretary General of Japan's Cabinet Yoshihide Suga that also took part in the meeting stressed that it was necessary to provide humanitarian aid to children, refugees and other residents affected by the alleged use of chemical weapons in Syria.
Suga noted that the neighboring North Korea also has chemical weapons reserves. In particular, due to this fact, members of the Japanese government agreed that they couldn’t remain aloof about the use of chemical weapons in Syria, according to the Secretary General.
