CARICOM warns against using military force in Syria
2013-09-07 10:00:00 | (0 Comments)
The 15-member CARICOM grouping yesterday condemned the use of chemical weapons in the ongoing civil war in Syria but urged the global community not to engage in military force to deal with the situation.
The Guyana based CARICOM Secretariat said in a statement that the regional grouping is closely monitoring the rapidly evolving development in Syria.
The United States has said it had irrefutable evidence that the chemical weapons were used by the Bashar al-Assad administration resulting in the deaths of nearly, 1,500 people including more than 400 children last month.
The Obama administration has promised to use military retaliation and is awaiting support from the US Congress for its impending action.
