LONDON: U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said in London on Monday that Syria could prevent a military attack if President Bashar al-Assad handed over all his chemical weapons to the international community within the next week.
Kerry, who was holding a news conference with British counterpart William Hague at the time, said: “He could turn over every single bit of his chemical weapons to the international community in the next week – turn it over, all of it without delay and allow the full and total accounting (of it) but he isn’t about to do it and it can’t be done.”
When asked about Assad’s denial regarding the use of chemical weapons, the secretary of state stated, ”We know that his regime gave orders to prepare for a chemical attack. We know they deployed forces.”
Speaking to reporters in London, Kerry also insisted that the relationship between Britain and the United States was as strong as ever despite the British parliament having decided not to join military action against Syria.
