Gilmore calls for political solution in Syria
Tánaiste Eamon Gilmore says the deliberate use of chemical weapons against a civilian population in Syria is a very serious war crime.
In a statement issued this evening, Mr Gilmore says the use of these weapons has rightly been outlawed for almost a century.
He said it's essential the UN inspectors have unrestricted and safe access to the sites of these attacks to reach their findings - and that Ireland and the wider international community await the team's report as a matter of urgency.
In conclusion, the Tánaiste says only a political solution can bring peace to Syria.
