The Government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela strongly condemns and condemns the attack perpetrated by the United States, France and the United Kingdom, against the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic.

Following, the full statement:

The Government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela repudiates and strongly condemns the unilateral military attack perpetrated by the United States, France and the United Kingdom, against the territory and the brotherly People of the Syrian Arab Republic.

Once again, the United States and some of its allies disown the most elementary principles and norms of International Law, when undertaking unilateral action, without their discussion and approval within the organs empowered to do so by the United Nations. With the unilateral and illegal use of violence, the attacking countries openly violate the sovereignty, the right to life and all the human rights of the brotherly Syrian people.

The Syrian Arab Republic has been attacked despite the fact that the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) has not yet sent its teams of experts to the field to investigate the supposed use of chemical weapons by the Syrian army. The hasty military operation of the United States, recalls the catastrophic invasion of Iraq in 2003, justified under the pretext of the necessary neutralization of weapons of mass destruction that, after months of death and chaos, they acknowledged never having located.

The President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, in the name of the Venezuelan People and Government, expresses his absolute solidarity with the Syrian people and government for the loss of lives, injuries and material damage, as a consequence of this ruthless and unjustified attack.
