North Atlantic Treaty Organisation supports airstrikes in Syria

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation supports airstrikes in Syria

He said all 29 North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members backed the airstrikes as a outcome of the country conducting a suspected chemical attack against its civilians last weekend.

All NATO member states expressed their support for the strikes of France, the United Kingdom, and the United States against Syria, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said on Saturday.

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

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

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.

President of the European Council Donald Tusk also supported the joint strikes.

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.

"No. Actually on the contrary, I think if we have just been silent, and accepted the use of chemical weapons, it would have undermined the efforts to find a political solution". "Chemical weapons can not be used with impunity and can not be normalized", Stoltenberg said.

On April 9, seven Iranian personnel were among 14 people killed in an early-morning strike on the T-4 airbase in Syria, with regime allies Iran and Russian Federation blaming Israel for the attack.
