US Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley
The regime of President Bashar al-Assad can no longer with impunity use weapons against the civilian population. This was stated by the U.S. permanent representative to the UN security Council Nikki Haley during an urgent meeting of the security Council on Syria.
“On Tuesday, the Assad regime committed another chemical weapons attack on civilians, killing innocent men, women and children in the most brutal way. Assad did this because he believed that go unpunished because he knew that Russia will protect him. The international community is not able to act collectively, then the individual States need to take action. Indiscriminate use of chemical weapons against civilians is one such occasion. The United States will not sit idly by when chemical weapons are used/ It is in the vital national interest – to prevent the spread of chemical weapons. Our military destroyed the aerodrome from which the attack was carried out this week. We totally had a reason to do it. More the Assad regime cannot wriggle out from your response, we are unable to respond to his actions with empty words. It’s time to say “Enough,” said Haley.

Haley added that the international community has repeatedly expressed his anger. A joint mechanism of investigation has proved that the Syrian regime has used chemical weapons against the population repeatedly. However, the UN proved to be ineffective because Russia promised to veto on Syria.
“We had hoped that the security Council will act, but 7 times Russia has said it will use the veto in order to cover up the actions of the Assad regime,” – said Hailey.
