UN wise not to assign blame for chemical attacks in Syria: al-Gharbi
The U.S. and its allies assert the UN report released Monday undeniably shows the Syrian regime is the only party responsible. Russia continues to suspect the rebels.
To help understand the impasse and explore the possibilities going forward, VOR’s Crystal Park spoke with Musa al-Gharbi, a research fellow with the Southwest Initiative for the Study of Middle East Conflicts based at the University of Arizona.
Al-Gharbi believes the UN was wise to refrain from assessing blame in reporting the results of its investigation, both because they retain flexibility and can focus their efforts on disabling chemical weapons, not choosing sides in the Syrian civil war.
