UN Envoy: Any Military Intervention in Syria Requires UN Approval

"International law is clear" says Lakhdar Brahimi


Any U.S. military action taken in response to apparent chemical weapons attacks in Syria would need to be approved by the U.N. Security Council, international envoy Lakhdar Brahimi said on Wednesday.

"I think international law is clear on this. International law says that military action must be taken after a decision by the Security Council. That is what international law says," he told a press conference in Geneva.
