Statement of the MFA on the Attack in Syrian City of Douma


The MFA is deeply concerned by the reports of another chemical weapons attack in Douma, which, according to the rescue workers, has claimed dozens of dead and injured, including children.

The Czech Republic has strongly and over a long time condemned the use of chemical weapons and has fully supported the work of the Independent International Investigation Commission on Syria and the International Impartial and Independent Mechanism to investigate these crimes and prosecute those responsible.

If the attack is confirmed, we expect coordinated action by the EU and the international community.

The Czech Republic fully supports the statement on this matter issued by the European External Action Service.
