2012-07-24 11:59

The U.S. President Barack Obama has warned Syrian President Bashar Assad, in the case of use of chemical weapons he would have to take responsibility for his actions.


"Given the reserves of chemical weapons in disposal of the Syrian regime, we want Assad and his associates to know that the world is watching them, and they will have to respond to the international community and the United States if they commit a tragic mistake, using chemical weapons", Obama said, speaking on Monday in Nevada.

Previously, the Pentagon urged Assad to avoid even the thought of using chemical weapons, the RIA Novosti reported. A similar statement was made by the State Department.

Recall, previously Damascus stated it was ready to use chemical weapon in the case of military interference. "Syria may use chemical weapons only in case of foreign aggression", Foreign Ministry spokesman of the country Jihad Maqdisi said at a press conference.

"Chemical weapons, Syria has in the disposal, will never be used against civilians and the Syrian people, regardless of how the crisis in the country develops", he stressed.

He also noted that all existing stocks of weapons of Syria were "under the control and protection of the Syrian army".
