British Foreign Secretary William Hague stressed on Sunday, "I do believe very strongly the world must stand up the use of chemical weapons."
He added, "The risks of not doing so in my view are greater than the risks of doing so in a limited, proportionate and careful way," while replying the questions of Andrew Marr's programme broadcasted on BBC One.
Hague noted that the British parliament made its decision about the UK not taking part in any military action over Syrian use of chemical weapons at a voting and accused the Labour Party being "opportunistic and partisan" in regards to the issue.
British foreign secretary also mentioned that a lot of public unease about intervention overseas and continued saying, "Be reassured that we have learned lessons of Iraq. We aren't seeking to be drawn into wars in the Middle East. We now make decisions in a completely different way."
"This issue is about chemical weapons, which is a bigger issue than Syria. What the US have been talking about, what we were talking about before the vote in parliament, was a limited and proportionate response to the use of chemical weapons to deter the use of chemical weapons", Hague underscored.
William Hague reminded that he came together with the officials of the Syrian National Coalition (SNC) this week and highlighted, "There are some good people in Syria because without them we cannot get the political solution we need."
Hague will be holding talking with his US counterpart, John Kerry, the Secretry of State, in British capital London. Hague noted that even though the US was disappointed with that outcome of the voting, the British government respects the view of Parliament.
Last week, the House of Commons rejected the government proposal of "a strong humanitarian response" by a 285 to 272 margin.
