Syria: NATO in chemical weapons warning (Pretext?)
Nato Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen has underlined US President Barack Obama’s warning to the Syrian government not to use chemical weapons against its own people.
At a Nato foreign ministers’ meeting in Brussels, Mr Rasmussen said their use would be "completely unacceptable".
The foreign ministers are expected to approve the deployment of Patriot anti-missile batteries to Turkey.
The move is designed to defend Turkey’s border with Syria.
Speaking ahead of the Nato meeting, Mr Rasmussen told reporters: "The possible use of chemical weapons would be completely unacceptable for the whole international community.
"If anybody resorts to these terrible weapons, then I would expect an immediate reaction from the international community."
The meeting of the 28-member Western military alliance’s foreign ministers in Brussels follows a request from Turkey to boost its defences along the border. Nato officials have made clear such a move would be purely defensive.
President Obama has warned Syrian President Bashar al-Assad he would face "consequences" if he used chemical weapons against his people.
"The world is watching. The use of chemical weapons is and would be totally unacceptable," said Mr Obama in a speech at the National Defense University in Washington.
"If you make the tragic mistake of using these weapons there will be consequences and you will be held accountable."
