US Must Show Evidences Syria
The United States must "fully open up" about the evidence that they say, they have of the fact that Syrian President Assad is behind the poison gas attacks of last week. The Netherlands didn’t receive that information yet, said Minister of Foreign Affairs, Frans Timmermans, on Monday at Knevel & Van den Brink.
"If it is true that Assad is behind this, then it can not remain without consequences," says Timmermans. "Doing nothing is the worst signal you can give. Then you show that this can continue without punishment. Intervention should be done under the banner of the UN, said the minister. He does not immediately spring to military actions, but he would not rule out them either.
Timmermans responds to the U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, who earlier on Monday said, that the U.S. is convinced that Assad was behind the attack with chemical weapons. Timmermans called Kerry ‘very very positive’. “I would never prejudge the situation in that way.”
