Gov’t Condemns Use Of Chemical Weapon In Syrian Conflict
The Government of Liberia has reacted with dismay to the reported use of chemical weapons in the Syrian conflict.
According to a Foreign Ministry release, the use of chemical weapons in any conflict is prohibited under the Chemical Weapons Convention, and therefore its use by any party in any conflict is a complete violation of international law, which must be unequivocally condemned.
The Government of Liberia therefore supports the current mission of the United Nations team investigating the reported use of chemical weapons in the Syrian crisis.
The release added that the culpable party or parties in the perpetration of this heinous crime against the Syrian people must not go with impunity and must be held fully accountable by the international community.
