Baird Says ‘Firm International Response’ Is Needed on Syria

Aug. 28 (Bloomberg) -- Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird said a “firm international response” is needed against Syria as the U.S. and its NATO allies prepare evidence the Assad government used chemical weapons on its own people.

Baird, speaking today to reporters in Montreal, said Canada will wait to see what options are chosen before it determines what assistance it can provide.

“We understand that as this struggle drags on, Canada will need to do more, and we are willing to do so,” Baird said. “The Syrian regime has charted a dangerous path. The appropriate consequences will follow.”

The U.S. and the U.K. today said they are prepared to take military action against Syria without authorization from the United Nations Security Council.
