Chemical weapons sanctions regime – new designations adopted by the EU (14 november 2022)


France welcomes the EU’s designation of new individuals and one entity under the chemical weapons sanctions regime.

The production and use of chemical weapons anywhere, at any time, by anyone and in any circumstances is unacceptable, and sanctions must be imposed on those who do so. France reaffirms its staunch commitment to a complete ban on chemical weapons.

The fight against impunity and a complete ban on the use of chemical weapons remain our priorities. This fight is key to an effective, credible ban. It was in this spirit that in 2018, France launched an international partnership against impunity for the use of chemical weapons.
