Qatar has welcomed the resolution issued by the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons’ (OPCW) Executive Council regarding the elimination of Syrian chemical weapons, believing in the principle of the inadmissibility of the use of chemical weapons under any circumstances.
In his address during the second session of the extraordinary meeting of the OPCW’s executive council No 33, Charge d’Affaires at the embassy of Qatar in The Hague Khalid Fahad al-Hajri called on the international community to fully co-operate with the organisation in responding to the destruction, horrific massacres and the scorched earth policy pursued by the Syrian regime against its people through the use of chemical weapons.
Qatar stressed in its address that any agreement or decision cannot be a substitute for finding a final solution to achieve the legitimate aspirations of the Syrian people to freedom and dignity and the transfer of power according to their will.
The State of Qatar also believes that it is unacceptable for this agreement or resolution to be an obstacle in bringing perpetrators who have used chemical weapons and committed other brutal massacres to justice.
Qatar emphasised that accelerating the effort to put Syria’s chemical weapons under international control is a step in the right direction to achieve the universality of the Chemical Weapons Convention.
In this regard, Qatar reiterated the call to the countries that have not acceded to the Convention to join it in order to achieve international peace and security.
Al-Hajri stressed Qatar’s full support for the efforts of the international inspectors in their mission in Syria and for the oganisation and the agreement on the Prohibition of chemical weapons.
