NATO Secretary General Statement on North Atlantic Council Meeting on Syria

The North Atlantic Council has just discussed the situation in Syria and in particular the horrific use of chemical weapons around Damascus on 21 August.

We condemn in the strongest possible terms these outrageous attacks, which caused major loss of life.
NATO Allies expressed their full support to the ongoing UN investigation. They deplored that the Syrian regime failed to provide immediate and secure access for the United Nations inspectors to the sites of the attacks.

The Syrian regime maintains custody of stockpiles of chemical weapons. Information available from a wide variety of sources points to the Syrian regime as responsible for the use of chemical weapons in these attacks.

This is a clear breach of long-standing international norms and practice. Any use of such weapons is unacceptable and cannot go unanswered. Those responsible must be held accountable.

We consider the use of chemical weapons as a threat to international peace and security.

We will continue to consult and keep the situation in Syria under close review, and NATO continues to assist Turkey and protect the Alliance’s south-eastern border.

    And this is NATO speaking? NATO that bombed Yugoslavia and claimed the great success of killing thousands and destroying most of the infrastructure of Serbia? NATO that did this to save lives? NATO that pretended it was needed once the whole rationale of the Cold War made it redundant?
    Kosovo is now the MODEL for the Obama régime to attack Syria.
    NATO claims, like the F/UK/US gang, that the Syrian government has been stupid enough to use nerve gas when this is the “red line” and also when the UN is investigating. The “rebels” are good guys like those that POTUS Raygun (sic) supported to fight theRusskies in Afghanistan. And the public really believes all this???????
