Udall Statement on Chemical Weapons in Syria

WASHINGTON - U.S. Senator Tom Udall (D-NM), a member of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, today issued the following statement on intelligence assessments indicating the use of chemical weapons in Syria:

"Today, the administration indicated there is some evidence of small scale military use of a chemical weapon-sarin gas-by the Syrian regime. Geneva Protocol prohibits the military use of sarin gas and this is a very troubling development. I remain concerned about the ongoing violence in Syria, and will continue to monitor the situation, the relevant U.S. policy options and the potential international consequences."
