(Worthy News) - The European Union on Monday unveiled a legal framework to allow sanctions against the use of chemical weapons.
The framework gives the EU the power to place restrictive measures on people or entities identified as being involved in the development or deployment of chemical weapons, regardless of their location or nationality, EU foreign ministers said in a press release.
It is important "to make clear that something like this can't be left unpunished," said German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas. [ Source; Deutche Welle (Read More...) ]
