WASHINGTON - U.S. Senator Mary L. Landrieu, D-La., released the following statement this evening on the unfolding situation in Syria.
"The use of chemical weapons is cruel and inhumane, and I'm convinced by the evidence presented that the Assad regime used them. During the last few days, I've taken in a tremendous amount of information and views and listened closely to the people of Louisiana and will continue to do so. I believe that we should all push as hard as possible for a diplomatic solution, which would require Syria to give up its complete stockpile of chemical weapons and agree to cease future production and use, in a way that can be verified."
