Turkey - SMART

On Thursday, according to media North Korea denied reports of cooperating with the Syrian  government on chemical weapons.

In a UN report disclosed by the Associated Press, it was revealed that North Korea exported materials and technologies used in military programs in Syria, including ballistic missiles and chemical weapons.

According to Reuters, the state-run Korean News Agency quoted a spokesman from the Department of State’s Research Institute of American Studies, that “the United States [has] fabricated a senseless argument for North Korea's hand in producing chemical weapons.”.

The spokesman added that “as we have stated several times, our republic does not develop, produce or stockpile chemical weapons and strictly opposes the use of chemical weapons.”

North Korea has been under UN sanctions since 2006 for its nuclear programs, and the Security Council has stepped up the pressure in response to it’s sixth nuclear testing and launching of many long-range missiles.

Late last month, the Chemical Weapons Prohibition Organization opened an investigation enquiring into the use of poison gas in attacks on Eastern Ghouta. Mid-month, the US National Security Advisor, HR. McMaster said that the time had come for the international community to hold the Syrian government accountable for its use of chemical weapons.

The Syrian Civil Defense and medical authorities recently documented the Syrian loyalist forces’ shelling of the capital Damascus, and the town of Saraqib in Eastern Idlib, which resulted in dozens of suffocating civilians.
