Stoltenberg: All NATO allies fully support joint military action in Syria

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

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation chief Stoltenberg says all North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies back Syria airstrikes by US, UK and France.

The western states' attack on Syria followed the reported chemical weapons attack on civilians in the city of Duma.

Members of the MA congressional delegation criticized President Trump for taking military action without congressional approval and called on him to explain the US strategy in Syria. This legally questionable action risks escalating further, as US Defence Secretary James Mattis has admitted, an already devastating conflict and therefore makes real accountability for war crimes and use of chemical weapons less, not more likely'. Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said the strikes were about making sure chemical weapons can not be used with impunity.

Stoltenberg noted that the allied strikes on Syria were very targeted, measured, proportionate, and aimed at the chemical weapons facilities only.

Saudi Arabia on April 14 expressed its full support for US -led strikes on Syrian government military installations, saying they were a response to "regime crimes" against civilians.

"This calls for a collective and effective response by the worldwide community", the statement says.

Last week, a gas attack in Syria had killed at least 60 people and injured several others.
