Foreign Minister Timo Soini says he is shocked about the Syrian gas attack. According to him, Finland sharply condemns the attack. « It is a war crime. This is one of the saddest days in this job », he said. According to Soini, the UN Security Council’s permanent members now are in charge. They need to put an end to the attacks by increasing the pressure. In his opinion, it is a shame for the international community if things like this can occur.
