German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle said on Monday that Germany would support the "consequences" against the Syrian regime if the use of chemical weapons is confirmed.

"The use of mass destruction would be a crime against civilization," Westerwelle said in the Berlin conference of German ambassadors.

Westerwelle added that if the attack is confirmed, Germany would then be among those who would support the consequences.

"In this regard, we are in close communications with the UN and our allies," said Westerwelle.

Indicating that It was high time for UN inspectors to go to the crime scene, Westerwelle said the Syrian regime had been too late in giving permission for an investigation.

On the other hand, Westerwelle reiterated his call for a diplomatic solution in Syria.
