UAE expresses ‘deep concern’ over situation in Syria

The UAE also calls for the establishment of an inquiry commission and hold those responsible for the chemical weapons attacks accountable

Abu Dhabi: The UAE has expressed its “deep concern” on the current situation in Syria, and the failure of the UN Security Council to make a decisive call to protect Syrian civilians and put an end to the use of chemical weapons.


In a statement, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, said: “The UAE calls on the international community to take all necessary actions and measures that guarantee the safety and protection of civilians, and to end the violence in Syria.”

The UAE also calls for the establishment of an inquiry commission and hold those responsible for the chemical weapons attacks accountable, it added.

It went on to say that the UAE stresses the need to activate the Arab role in joint international efforts to advance the mechanisms of the political situation, and once again calls upon all Syrian parties to return to the negotiations table and immediately implement all relevant resolutions, particularly UNSC Resolution No. 2254 and the Geneva Communique.

The statement reiterated the UAE’s position that a political solution is the only way to end the Syrian crisis and establish security and stability in the region.
