UN links N Ko­rea to Syr­ian govt’s chem­i­cal weapons

Hindustan Times (Gurgaon) - - World -

UNITED NA­TIONS: North Ko­rea has been ship­ping sup­plies to the Syr­ian gov­ern­ment that could be used in the pro­duc­tion of chem­i­cal weapons, UN ex­perts con­tend.

The ev­i­dence of a North Korean con­nec­tion comes as the US and other coun­tries ac­cuse the Syr­ian gov­ern­ment of us­ing chem­i­cal weapons on civil­ians, in­clud­ing re­cent at­tacks in the Da­m­as­cus sub­urb of Eastern Ghouta us­ing what ap­pears to have been chlo­rine gas.

The sup­plies in­clude acid-re­sis­tant tiles, valves and ther­mome­ters, ac­cord­ing to a re­port by UN in­ves­ti­ga­tors. North Korean mis­sile tech­ni­cians have also been spot­ted at known chem­i­cal weapons and mis­sile fa­cil­i­ties in Syria, the re­port said.NYT
