BRUSSELS, September 11 (Itar-Tass) - NATO upholds the UN efforts to control and eliminate chemical weapons in Syria, a NATO official told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
“Efforts to ensure the control of and ultimate destruction of Syria’s chemical weapons are positive and we support the UN in this area; however, the details of these proposals are not yet clear,” the official said.
“NATO’s position is clear: the chemical weapons attacks that took place on 21 August around Damascus were appalling and inexcusable,” he said, adding, “The international community has a responsibility to make sure that the long-standing norm and practice against the use of chemical weapons is maintained, and violators are held accountable”.
