North Atlantic Treaty Organisation convenes as Stoltenberg voices support for Syria strikes

The NATO Secretary General on Saturday backed the joint strikes by the USA, the United Kingdom, and France targeting the Syrian regime's chemical weapons capabilities. The alliance's chief said that the strikes "degraded the capabilities of Syria to conduct new attacks".

"I call on the members of the Security Council to unite and exercise that responsibility", Guterres said.

Former U.S. ambassador to NATO Nicholas Burns, who is now a professor of diplomacy at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government, joined WBUR's Weekend Edition.

US President Donald Trump on Friday launched precision air strikes on Syria in a combined operation with France and Britain. This legally questionable action risks escalating further, as US Defence Secretary James Mattis has admitted, an already devastating conflict and therefore makes real accountability for war crimes and use of chemical weapons less, not more likely'.

On April 7, the volunteer organizations reported that the chemical attack at Douma, the East Ghouta took place.
