Pakistan concerned over situation in Syria; condemns use of chemical weapons

The US Navy guided-missile cruiser USS Monterey fires a Tomahawk land attack missile on Friday

"The United Arab Emirates sees that political solution is the foundation for addressing the Syrian crisis and for ending the suffering and violence there, on the basis of relevant worldwide legitimacy resolutions, particularly the Security Council Resolution 2254 and the Geneva I Communique", said the statement.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has appealed to the five permanent members of the Security Council to break the current deadlock on reported use of chemical weapons in Syria and prevent the situation spiralling out of control in the war-torn country. "A lot has been destroyed in last night's strikes".

"But I think the lesson has been learned".

Experts from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) are on their way to Syria to probe the alleged chlorine strike on the then rebel-held suburb of Douma, which took place on April 7.

"We support the fact that our US, British and French allies ... assumed their responsibilities".

Western powers said an alleged Syrian chemical massacre must not go unanswered Friday even as the United Nations secretary-general warned against a "full-blown military escalation".

In a restrained reaction on the US-led attack on Syria, India on Saturday called for an 'impartial investigation'.

Russian Federation has told the United States that it will not allow its troops on the ground in Syria to be put at risk by military action, even though the two countries have channels of communication to avoid such a clash.

According to Pentagon, the Syrian forces lost several equipment and materials associated with chemical weapons in the airstrikes.

Western diplomats said they were ready to allow time for negotiations to make every effort to bring Russian Federation aboard.

It was one of three votes held Tuesday after the White Helmets, a civil defense agency, blamed the Bashar al-Assad regime for attack, which it said killed 78 civilians and injured hundreds of others. "The EU will stand with our allies on the side of justice", Tusk said in a Twitter message.

The continued reports of chemical weapons use in Syria are outrageous, he said.

The UAE statement said the country supports all worldwide measures that aim to remove and destroy the internationally-prohibited weapons and stressed the need to prevent them from falling into the hands of armed terrorist groups.
