Kerry threatens Syria with military force over chemical weapons issue

US Secretary of State John Kerry has threatened Syria with the use of military force under a United Nations charter, accusing Damascus of delaying to hand over its chemical weapons.

„Every indication we have is that there is no legitimate reason why that (removal) is not happening now,“ the top US diplomat said during a press conference in Berlin on Friday.

„We want the Syrian regime to live up to its obligations and it is critical that very rapidly all those chemical weapons are moved from their 12 or so sites to the one site in the port (of Latakia) to be prepared for shipment out of Syria,“ he added.

Under a deal reached last year, Syria is obligated to surrender all toxic agents for destruction by mid-2014.

The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons said Wednesday that Syria had handed over less than five percent of its arsenal, urging Damascus to pick up the pace in shipping out the stockpile.

Damascus says security problems caused delays.

Kerry also warned Syrian President Bashar al-Assad over the issue.

„I would remind Bashar al-Assad that the agreement that we reached in New York with the Security Council makes it clear that if there are issues of non-compliance, they will be referred to the Security Council for Chapter 7 compliance purposes,“ Kerry said.

Chapter 7 refers to a UN article that sets out possible sanctions including the threat of military force.

However, Russian officials rejected the suggestion that the United Nations Security Council would consider the use of force.

Moscow says it accepted Syria’s explanation that it had been unable to ship the chemicals because of security threats from foreign-backed militants.

Deputy Russian Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov said it was “counterproductive” to suggest the use of force.

“We agreed a long time ago … that there is no alternative to a political solution to the conflict in Syria,” Gatilov said.
