Ukraine calls for use of UN mechanisms to prevent crimes like chemical attack in Syrian Douma – Poroshenko
President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko has called the the actions of the United States, Britain and France in response to Damascus using chemical weapons in the Syrian city of the Douma "forced but justified" step, and called for the use of all UN mechanisms to prevent such chemical attacks.
"We consider the targeted strike of the international coalition against the objects of the military chemical infrastructure of the Assad regime as a forced but justified step. This is a fair answer to the fact of committing a brutal crime against humanity - a chemical attack in Douma on April 7, which killed dozens of innocent people," the Ukrainian president wrote on Facebook on Saturday.
Poroshenko also stressed that Ukraine calls for the use of all possible mechanisms and instruments of the UN, including the Security Council, "to prevent similar crimes of dictatorial regimes in the future."
