Ambassador Baeidinejad in The Independent: Why the US and its allies could not postpone their attack against Syria until the inspectors of OPCW do their inspection activity?

Ambassador Baeidinejad in an article in the Independent - Satuarday 21 April 2018 - asked why the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), which is legally and internationally empowered to enforce verification of such weapons’ use, was not fully employed in relation to the alleged chemical attack in Douma?

He asked also why the US and its allies could not postpone their action until the inspectors, who were already on their own way, could reach Douma and start their inspection activity?

He answeres that unfortunately, the US, the UK and France acted in total disregard of the terms of the CWC and resorted to a unilateral assault on Syria, without authorisation from the UN, which is a clear violation of the UN Charter and against international law. 

He added that, 192 states have adhered to a universal treaty in an effort to realise their shared aspiration to achieve a world free from chemical weapons by implementation of a robust, multilateral, verification regime. The fact that a few countries consider themselves above the law, and are prepared to put themselves in the position of prosecutor, inspector and judge, without any legitimate mandate, in order to launch an attack on a UN member is destabilising to say the least.
