Pakistan urges parties in Syrian conflict to refrain from action contrary to UN charter

Islamabad has called upon all parties involved in Syrian conflict to refrain from action that is contrary to the UN charter. Pakistan’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Mohammad Faisal on Saturday expressed “grave concern” at the situation in Syria after US-led military strikes there. He said it is important to establish facts through urgent and transparent investigations by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) of the suspected use of chemical weapons in Syria. “We call upon all parties to strive for an agreement within the OPCW framework and extend full support to the organization,” he added. “We hope that all parties will work to find an urgent solution to end the suffering of the Syrian people.”
