Chemical attacks. No doubt allowed? (Gymnich)

(BRUSSELS2 in Vilnius) Are the Europeans moving towards an agreement on the responsibility of the Bashar el Assad regime in the chemical strikes of August 21? According to our information, the draft declaration concocted under the authority of Catherine Ashton, the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs (who chairs the meeting), would indeed mention this fact. “ There is no serious doubt about our responsibility” would indicate the text. " Syria has violated international law. And this requires an appropriate response. (…) Any reaction must take into account the report of the UN inspectors. (…) The involvement of the International Court of Justice must be examined. (…) We remain engaged in a political process. »
