He said India continues to support the proposed ‘International Conference on Syria’ (Geneva-II), being the best prospect for a political solution, for bringing the Syrian government and the Opposition to the negotiating table.
Regarding the reports of the Syrian government using chemical weapons, which triggered the US expediting the possibility of a military strike, he said India will prefer to await the full results of the United Nations inspection.
“On use of chemical weapons in Syria, India has consistently supported the complete destruction and elimination of chemical weapons worldwide. The international legal norm against the use of chemical weapons anywhere and by anyone should not be breached. However, we will prefer to await the full results of the UN inspection,” Akbaruddin said.
