Lord Owen’s Interview with CNBC on Syria

Interview with CNBC 29 August 2013

Lord Owen states that diplomatic options on Syria must be pursued first. The world needs to know beyond doubt who has used the gas in Syria and we must await the UN inspector’s report. Are the US and UK correct in asserting the chemical weapons were used by the Assad regime or is there credence in the Russian claim that it was used by Al-Qaeda. It is known within intelligence sources that they have access to small gas munitions. We also know that in civil wars agent provocateuring does occur. One hopes that progress towards achieving a ceasefire can be made in the Security Council on Monday. If not, the upcoming G20 Summit in St Petersburg on 5-6 September  must be used as a negotiation to stop this civil war”
