UK urges chemical weapons watchdog to urgently carry out investigation in Syria

LONDON – U.K. Foreign Secretary William Hague has urged on Wednesday a chemical weapons watchdog to urgently carry out its investigation into the alleged use of chemical weapons in Syria.

In reaction to the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons announcement that it will send a mission to Syria, Hague said the organization should be allowed to carry out its investigation without interference. 

"Reports suggesting that chemical weapons have again been used, heaping further misery on the people of Syria, are utterly sickening. Time is of the essence in establishing the full facts," said Hague. "The international community must be ready to hold anyone found to have used chemical weapons fully accountable for their crimes."
