ISIS is using chlorine as a weapon, Australia’s Foreign Minister says

June 6, 2015 |

Smoke rises after what activists said were clashes with Islamic State fighters in Soran Azaz, Aleppo countrysideBy Morag MacKinnon PERTH (Reuters) – Islamic State militants have used chlorine as a weapon and are recruiting highly trained technicians in a serious bid to develop chemical weapons, Australia’s Foreign Minister Julie Bishop warned. In a speech to an international forum of nations that works to fight the spread of such weapons, Bishop said the rise of militant groups such as ISIS, also known as Daish, posed “one of the gravest security threats we face today.” “Apart from some crude and small scale endeavors, the conventional wisdom has been that the terrorist intention to acquire and weaponize chemical agents has been largely aspirational,” Bishop told a meeting of the Australia Group in Perth. “The use of chlorine by Daish, and its recruitment of highly technically trained professionals, including from the West, have revealed far more serious efforts in chemical weapons development,” she said.

Germany’s fear of ‘chlorine chicken’ complicates U.S. trade talks

July 14, 2014 |

Cage free hens are gathered at an egg farm in San Diego CountyBy Robin Emmott and Tom Körkemeier BRUSSELS (Reuters) – Chancellor Angela Merkel once said she wished "for nothing more than a free-trade agreement between the USA and the EU". To the dismay of many in Brussels and Washington, Germans are now taking a very different view. A transatlantic pact would create a market of 800 million people and allow Germany to sell more of its luxury cars, trains and chemicals in the United States, an attractive proposition for an economy that has faltered in recent months. The difficulty of selling the benefits of a deal, which could generate $ 100 billion a year in economic growth for both the EU and the United States, is a sign of the challenge for governments seeking to contain a growing hostility to the talks.
