A Russian proposal for Syria to place its chemical weapons under international control to avoid a Western strike would not stop the bloodshed in the country, the Gulf Arab States said on Tuesday.

Arab Gulf states, attending the Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf (GCC) held at the foreign ministry level, said that Syrian President Bashar Assad must be punished for using chemical weapons against his own people.

Urging the international community to Syria, Arab Gulf states renewed their demands for the United Nations Security Council to take deterrent measures against Assad's government over an August 21 chemical weapons attack that killed more than 1,400 people.

Bahrain's Foreign Minister Khalid bin Ahmad Al Khalifa, Secretary General of the Council Abdullatif bin Rashid Al Zayani and Saudi FM Saud Al Faisal were amonng the attendants.
