Press Releases

The Republic of Macedonia follows attentively and with concern the recent developments in Syria and their possible consequences on international peace and stability.

 

In this regard, we consider the recent limited military operation conducted by USA, UK and France on targets in Syria, as adequate and measured reaction, aimed at preventing further breach of the Chemical Weapons Convention and the violation of the principles of international humanitarian law.

The Republic of Macedonia underlines the necessity of free access for the OPCW and UN experts to the area, in order to establish the facts concerning the events in Douma, at the same time calling upon all involved sides to show restraint and engage in diffusion of tensions. We believe that the latest developments in Syria confirm the necessity of urgent continuation of the political process, in accordance with the provisions of the UN Charter and the role of UN Security Council, in order to achieve a political solution that will bring to an end the long years of suffering of the Syrian people.
