"The situation in Syria is very shocking, the killings have been continuing there for two and a half years, and the international community has not found a solution. (...) The use of chemical weapons is a very special element. The United Nations cannot allow using weapons of mass destruction. The use of such weapons cannot be allowed, it has to be very clear that those using weapons of mass destruction will receive a response," Brok said at an interparliamentary conference of common security and defense policy in the Lithuanian capital on Thursday.
The West are currently considering responding to recent events in Syria. Syrian opposition groups have accused President Bashar al Assad's regime of having carried out a chemical attack near Damascus, killing more than 1,300 people. Damascus has rejected the accusations.
US President Barack Obama is currently working to persuade the Congress and his allies to support military strikes against Syria, while Russia's President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday urged the Western world to provide convincing evidence of the suspected chemical attacks in Syria to the United Nations (UN) Security Council.
