UNITED NATIONS, September 28 (Itar-Tass) - The UN Security Council has adopted resolution 2118 in support of the plan for eliminating Syria’s chemical weapons. All fifteen SC members voted for it.
The draft condemns any use of chemical weapons in Syria and emphasizes the need for ruling out the risk such weapons may end up in the hands of militants.
In case of more chemical weapons attacks in Syria or unauthorized transfer of chemical warfare agents the resolution envisages measures under Chapter 7 of the UN Charter, including sanctions and the use of military force.
