ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Monday condemned US President Barack Obama's unilateral decision to attack Syria on suspicion of use of chemical weapons in the country.

Khan stated that the issue is being investigated by UN's inspectors and any action based on the report submitted by these inspectors must be premised on and have sanction of the UNSC under Chapter VII of the Chapter.

"Unilateral military action against a sovereign member state of the UN is against the UN Charter and international law and the powerful cannot be allowed to break these international norms with impunity," Khan declared.

The PTI chairman reiterated that President Obama's decision to seek US Congressional approval for unilateral military action was an internal political issue and not a source of international legitimisation.

"Even in that context, Secretary of State Kerry's declaration that Congressional approval was not required was a reflection of the militaristic policies displayed by the Obama administration during its previous and present tenure in office."
