Clinton says situation in Syria 'accelerating'
Washington, Dec 7 (ANI): U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has warned that situation in Syria is accelerating, in the wake of reports that President Bashar al-Assad's government may be preparing to use chemical weapons.
"Events on the ground in Syria are accelerating, and we see that in many different ways. The pressure against the regime in and around Damascus seems to be increasing," Clinton said.
According to CNN, her remarks came before a meeting with Russia's foreign minister and the U.N. special envoy to Syria.
Chemical weapons were one topic on the table, said Clinton, who met with the leaders while she was in Dublin for an international security conference.
According to the report, US Defense Secretary Leon Panetta had also warned that American officials are 'very concerned' that al-Assad's forces may use chemical weapons as rebels advance.
"The intelligence that we have raises serious concerns that this is being considered," he had said. (ANI)
