SEOUL, August 22 (Itar-Tass) - The Republic of Korea is deeply concerned over allegations about chemical weapons use in Syria, South Korean Foreign Ministry spokesman Cho Tai-young said on Thursday.
“The government of the Republic of Korea has expressed deep concern in connection with media reports saying chemical weapons were used outside Damascus,” the spokesman said.
Noting that the use of chemical weapons violates international laws, the spokesman supported on behalf of the South Korean government an appeal of the UN Secretary General to thoroughly look into these allegations.
On Wednesday, the Syrian opposition accused the government of President Bashar al-Assad of a chemical weapons attack on the outskirts of Damascus, as a result of which more than 1,300 people were killed.
