MFA Spokesman's Comments in response to media queries on the situation in Syria

 

          In response to media queries on the situation in Syria, the MFA Spokesman said:

 

"Singapore remains deeply concerned about the deteriorating situation in Syria, which has already claimed the lives of many innocent Syrians as well as affected the stability of the region. The reported use of chemical weapons is a deplorable act that can never be justified under any circumstances. As an early party to the Chemical Weapons Convention, Singapore strongly condemns the use of chemical weapons and firmly believes in their eradication. Only a political solution will end the violence in Syria. In this regard, we call on the Syrian Government to urgently work with all parties, including the United Nations and the Arab League, to resolve the conflict peacefully."
