Action should be taken against the Assad regime if the Syrian president does not give up its chemical weapons, former prime minister Tony Blair has said.
Speaking on CNN show Piers Morgan Tonight, he said:
Asked if he would have been in favour of military intervention if he were still prime minister, Mr Blair replied:
UN chemical weapons investigators are expected to return to Syria to continue investigating allegations of chemical weapons use there according to Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov.
Mr Ryabkov said:
Chemical weapons inspectors are expected to return to Syria today. A United Nations team is believed to be setting off for Damascus today to continue their ongoing efforts to determine the use of the weapons in the war torn country.
