US, UK, France unilateral move in Syria ‘beyond intl. norms’

TEHRAN, Apr. 14 (MNA) – Iranian Ambassador to UK Hamid Baeedinejad condemned recent military attack of US and its allies including UK and France to Syria and said, “countries have no right to take unilateral action by relying on their own evidence, rather, these countries must commit themselves to a global mechanism within the framework of international norms and regulations.”

Speaking in an interview with British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) News Network Channel, he said, “as a victim of chemical weapons, Islamic Republic of Iran considers the use of these weapons very seriously which can jeopardize peace and security in the world to a great extent.”

Use of chemical weapons by any country is strongly condemned, he said, adding, “negotiations have been held for decades in the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCA) to prohibit the use of these weapons.”

He went on to say that use of such weapons should first be inspected by the international inspectors of Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCA) and reiterated, “collective punitive measures have been predicted in the Convention to combat the use of these weapons.”

Elsewhere in his remarks, he emphasized, “today, some countries claim that chemical weapons have been used in Syria but no document confirms such a baseless claim.”

Turning to the hostile policy taken by the US President on Iran and said, “current US Administration under Trump has left no stone unturned in order to undermine Iran in international level and advised the US government to live up to JCPOA within the framework of international rules and regulations.”
