The Secretary-General’s High Representative for Disarmament Affairs, Izumi Nakamitsu, during a session of the UN Security Council on the Syria chemical program
On Thursday, the United Nations demanded that all chemical weapons users in Syria be held accountable, stressing the importance of unity in the UN Security Council to fulfill this urgent commitment.
This came in the introduction to the 89th monthly report of the Director-General of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) on the Syria chemical program, which was reviewed by the Secretary-General’s High Representative for Disarmament Affairs, Izumi Nakamitsu, during a session of the Security Council held via a videoconference.
The report covers the period from January 24 to February 23.
In her testimony, Nakamitsu emphasized “the necessity to identify and hold accountable all those who used chemical weapons in Syria.”
The UN representative stressed “the importance of unity at the UN Security Council to fulfill this urgent commitment.”
She noted the position of the United Nations Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, “which considers the use of chemical weapons unacceptable anywhere, in any circumstances, and from what side.”
She informed the members of the Security Council, that the Syrian regime’s announcement to end its chemical program is “inaccurate and incomplete, and that there are gaps and inconsistencies in information that are inconsistent with the requirements of Council Resolution 2118.”
On September 13, 2013, the Syrian regime joined the Chemical Weapons Treaty, and in the same month the UN Security Council adopted Resolution No. 2118 on Syrian chemical weapons, as well as the massacre committed by Assad’s forces in Eastern Ghouta only a month before the regime announced its accession to the treaty.
Article 21 of the Security Council Resolution states that anyone who uses chemical weapons shall be criminalized, in accordance with Article Seven of the United Nations Charter.
