STRELNA, St Petersburg, September 6 (Itar-Tass) - As soon as the results of the examination on using chemical weapons in Syria are made public the U.N. Secretary-General will inform the Security Council and the world community, UN/LAS Special Envoy for Syria Lakhdar Brahimi said.
He said the Geneva-2 conference “is at risk”.
Brahimi said that neither he nor UN Secretary-General "do not express their opinions, but adhere to international law, according to which a military action without UN Security Council authorization is unacceptable." According to UN/LAS Special Envoy, the situation around Syria remains very dangerous.
Earlier, Russia's Foreign Minister Sergei Lagrov commented on the Syrian issue. The international community should do everything possible to prevent the use of force against Syria, he said.
