Brussels: NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen on Friday welcomed a ‘clear’ US statement accusing the Syrian regime of using chemical weapons and said Damascus must let the UN investigate the allegations.

"I welcome ‘clear’ US statement. Syria regime should let UN investigate all reports of chemical weapons use," he said.

He said the international community had made clear that the use of chemical weapons by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad was ‘completely unacceptable’ and a ‘breach of international law’.
