NATO Urges U.N. Inspection over Syria Chemical Weapons

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen on Friday welcomed a "clear" U.S. statement accusing the Syrian regime of using chemical weapons and said Damascus must let the U.N. investigate the allegations.

"I welcome clear U.S. statement. Urgent that Syria regime should let U.N. investigate all reports of chemical weapons use," he said on his official Twitter feed.

He said the international community had made clear that the use of chemical weapons by Syrian President Bashar Assad was "completely unacceptable" and a "breach of international law.”

"NATO Patriots will ensure effective protection of Turkey against any Syria missile attack, chemical or not," he said, referring to the air defense missiles that NATO has stationed in Turkey.

The NATO chief's comments came the day after President Barack Obama's administration said it had concluded that Syrian regime forces had used banned arms, including the nerve gas sarin, in attacks that killed up to 150 people.

The White House also promised "military support" to Syrian rebel forces.

The end is near for Nasrallah & Co. Russia and Iran will not take a stand against the West. Hezbollah went too far into Syria and he will be fighting against the US from the air and the FSA on the ground. Won't be fun!
