the hague - The United States wants the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) to condemn in no uncertain terms the attacks with chemical weapons in Syria.
'This council had long ago been forced to condemn the Syrian government for its regime of chemical terrorism and to hold those responsible for these gruesome acts internationally accountable,' said US Ambassador Kenneth Ward. This appears from notes that the Reuters news agency has recognized.

The representative of the European Union called on Russia and Iran to use their influence to prevent Syria from using chemical weapons.
