North Atlantic Treaty Organisation supports joint airstrikes in Syria

Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said the strikes were about making sure chemical weapons can not be used with impunity.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said on April 14 that the alliance “considers the use of chemical weapons unacceptable”.

He added that “those responsible must be held accountable”. “They emphasized that there was no practicable alternative to the use of force”, NATO Secretary General said.

Meanwhile, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has urged the members of the organisation to show moderation in the prevailing “dangerous” climate and to respect global law.

“This calls for a collective and effective response by the global community”.

“I urge all member states to show restraint in these risky circumstances and to avoid any acts that could escalate the situation and worsen the suffering of the Syrian people”.

Representatives of the U.K, France and the USA will inform the council about the airstrikes in Syria, the source added.

Russian efforts to veto United Nations action against Syria left US, British and French allies no option but to launch airstrikes against key installations, North Atlantic Treaty Organisation chief Jens Stoltenberg said.

And he says the U.S.is “prepared to sustain this effort if necessary”.

Pence says he’s hopeful that Russian Federation and Iran will “once and for all abandon chemical weapons” against innocent civilians.

Ahead of an impartial investigation by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, the United States, Britain and France joined the chorus, accusing the Bashar al-Assad government of using chemical weapons. The strikes were directed at three sites in the country that were linked to a chemical weapons program. As a result of this attack at least 70 people died. Israel did not deny or confirm any responsibility.
