(MENAFN- Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) KUWAIT, April 14 (KUNA) -- The State of Kuwait has followed up, with deep concern and alarm, latest dangerous developments in Syria namely the military operations, carried out as a result of the Syrian authorities' use of internationally prohibited chemical weapons, an official source at the Foreign Ministry said.
The developments have taken place due to undermining the international community's efforts to reach a political solution to the over-seven-year bloody political conflict in Syria, which left hundreds of thousands of people dead and several other millions homeless, the source added.
Alarmed at this serious escalation, the State of Kuwait calls on the UN Security Council (UNSC) members to set aside their differences and to show united positions instead, in order to boost their capabilities of shouldering their historic responsibilities for maintaining international security and stability, the source said.
The State of Kuwait, aware of the magnitude of the hardships suffered by the brotherly Syrian people and the dangers posed by the continuation of the strife, has sought through its non-permanent membership at the United Nations Security Council, and in cooperation with Sweden, to adopt Resolution 2401, calling for a cease-fire and allowing delivery of humanitarian aid to those in need in Syria.
However, regretfully this resolution has not been implemented due to obstructions placed by "forces on the field," the source noted. (end) rk
