United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is set to brief members of the security council on the findings in the report on the possible chemical use in Syria.
A note to correspondents issued by a UN spokesperson confirms that the report of the United Nations Mission to Investigate Allegations of the Use of Chemical Weapons in the Syrian Arab Republic has been turned over to the Secretary-General.
It goes on to say that Mr. Ban will brief the Security Council on the report during its closed consultations today morning. Following that briefing, the Secretary-General will speak to reporters at the Security Council stakeout, according to the note.
The Russia-US accord on the dismantling of Syria’s chemical stockpile will also weigh heavily on Security Council consultations expected to be called Monday.
International support for the initiative is growing, even as Washington and Paris warned that military action remains an option.
A Syrian minister insisted Sunday that the US-Russia deal represented a “victory” for the regime of President Bashar al-Assad.
