Bulgarian Socialist Leader Condemns Syria Chemical Attacks
Bulgarian Socialist Party leader and PES president Sergey Stanishev has condemned last week's use of chemical weapons in Syria as "completely unacceptable."
"We demand that the UN inspectors be granted full access to safely carry out their inspection. Chemical weapons are evil and we demand that Syria join the Chemical Weapons Convention," Stanishev said Wednesday, as cited by Bulgarian news agencies.
"We have always called for a political exit of the crisis, since only this could lead to a solution. The crisis could have been taken control of with the help of a dialog in a much earlier stage," he added.
"Unfortunately, Bashar al-Assad's regime has not contributed towards a political exit of this crisis in any moment," Stanishev said.
On Wednesday, Bulgarian Foreign Minister Kristian VIgenin said his country has not been asked to take part in military actions against Syria.
