The Sri Lankan government said today it was deeply concerned about media reports on the alleged use of chemical weapons near Damascus in Syria. It was said to have resulted in a large number of civilian casualties.

Issuing a statement the External Affairs Ministry said it was imperative to ensure an impartial and professional investigation in establishing the veracity of the use of chemical weapons.

As a state party to the Chemical Weapons Convention Sri Lanka abhors the production, stockpiling and use of chemical weapons, and has advocated their complete destruction and elimination globally. Sri Lanka will follow the evolving situation, the statement added.
