We call on the Hungarian government to join us and publicly condemn the Syrian government for the use of chemical weapons and call upon the international community to hold the Assad regime accountable for the fundamental violation of international norms writes the American Embassy.
We support the UN team's work that investigates the deployment of chemical weapons by the Assad regime that caused hundreds of civilian deaths; it is crystal clear that this atrocity has been committed by the Assad regime, which must be held accountable for his actions reads the statement of the American Embassy.
The Hungarian Foreign Ministry confirmed on Friday that the U.S. government forwarded the call through the normal diplomatic channels.
Gabor Kaleta, the head of the ministry's press department recalled that Hungary had already severed diplomatic ties with the Assad regime, and doesn't recognize it as a legitimate representative of Syria.
Hungary condemns the use of chemical weapons in the strongest possible terms.
Hungary makes its position known regarding Syria through "close consultation" with its allies writes the Hungarian press officer.
