Azerbaijan, Baku, Sep. 18 / Trend E. Kosolapova/
Kazakhstan once again strongly condemns the act of the chemical weapons use in Syria which was confirmed by independent investigation carried by the UN Mission and considers it as a crime against humanity, the Kazakh Foreign Ministry reported on Wednesday.
"We support the adoption of a UN Security Council resolution on Syria that would stipulate strict compliance to the agreed decision on the elimination of chemical weapons in this country and holding of regular inspections of this process," the Ministry said.
The Ministry expresses hopes that the accession of Syria to the Convention on the Prohibition of the Development, Production, Stockpiling and Use of Chemical Weapons and on their elimination as well as placement of such weapons under international control will preclude the possibility of their repeated use and become an effective step towards the end of a longstanding and bloody conflict in Syria.
Kazakhstan once again urged the international community and the UN Security Council to take systemic steps towards the ridding the planet of all types of weapons of mass destruction.
"We call for earliest convention of an international conference on the settlement of the conflict in Syria with the aim to end violence and determine Syria's political future through dialogue and reconciliation," the Kazakh Foreign Ministry said.
