    We view recent events in the context of repeated chemical weapons attacks against Syria’s civilian population, and as a consequence of the impunity enjoyed by their perpetrators so far. The lack of an appropriate response encourages further attacks with the use of weapons which are both banned under international law and blatantly unhumanitarian.

    In these circumstances, the international community cannot remain inactive and should take all necessary measures to prevent such attacks from being repeated in the future, especially against defenseless civilian population. At the same time, the competent international bodies should take decisions that will enable identification of the perpetrators, and bringing them to justice. 


    Poland will continue its international efforts aimed at complete elimination of chemical weapons. The use of such weapons is inacceptable and should be prosecuted in every circumstances and anywhere they are used.


    Poland calls for refraining from actions which could further escalate the situation.
