We’re aware of today’s press reports alleging that a chemical weapon was fired in the north of Syria and are looking into them.
The use of chemical weapons would be abhorrent and universally condemned.
The UK is clear that the use or proliferation of chemical weapons would demand a serious response from the international community and force us to revisit our approach so far.
