Germany vows to continue pressure on Russia over Syria

GERMANY (OBSERVATORY) –¬†Berlin will do its best to continue political pressure on Russia over a suspected chemical attack in Syria, German government spokesman Stephan Zeibert said on Friday.

He said there was “strong evidence” that chemical weapons were used in violation of international law and said Germany was in close contact with the United States and other allies on how to respond.

German Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Adebear said Berlin agreed with its allies that the use of chemical weapons should not go unpunished.

It added that it is clear that chemical weapons in Syria were not destroyed in a process that began in 2013.
