EuCheMS issues statement condemning the use of any and all chemical weapons in Syria

Following recent developments in the Syrian conflict, EuCheMS has issued a statement deploring the use of any and all chemical weapons in Syria. We reinforce our commitment to the declaration we issued in Seville in 2016, since unfortunately our statements then are even more urgent today. The EuCheMS Seville declaration states: “We, the Member Societies of the European Association for Chemical and Molecular Sciences (EuCheMS), deplore the use of chlorine in the Syrian conflict or any other and call upon the international community to bring to justice those responsible for the misuse of chlorine.” The declaration was signed by 36 Presidents of Chemical Societies or their representatives from all over Europe. The Press Release is available here and the Seville declaration is available here.
