BRUSSELS (AP) - NATO's chief says he is convinced
that the Syrian government used chemical weapons against its people and
insists a strong reaction is needed to show dictators around the world
that such weapons cannot be used with impunity.
NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said
Monday that the alliance would remain a strong defender of Turkey in
case the member state was attacked as part of the Syria crisis, and NATO
would remain a forum for allies to consult about action. He says that,
at the moment, he does not see an additional NATO role.
Rasmussen insisted that "personally I am convinced,
not only that a chemical attack has taken place ... but I am also
convinced that the Syrian regime is responsible."
