Chemical Weapons Attacks In Syria

EDM number 913 in 2017-19, proposed by Ann Clwyd on 06/02/2018.
Categorised under the topics of Middle East and Military operations.

That this House is dismayed by continuing chemical weapons attacks in Syria, and the devastating effects on civilians; is very concerned that the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons-United Nations Joint Investigative Mechanism, which investigated such attacks in Syria, was disbanded at the end of last year, following Russia's veto of a United Nations Security Council resolution requesting the renewal of the Mechanism' s mandate for another year; notes that during the two years in which it operated as the Joint Investigative Mechanism found that the Syrian government and the "Islamic State" had used chemical weapons against civilians; notes also that Russia has never conceded that President Assad's forces have used chemical weapons in the conflict in Syria; believes that the widespread and systematic use of chemical weapons by the Syrian government may amount to crimes against humanity; calls on the Government, together with members of the international community, to ensure that governments and other entities which use chemical weapons are identified and the perpetrators held to account.

This motion has been signed by a total of 22 MPs.
