WASHINGTON - Any US response to the alleged use of chemical weapons in Syria must be part of an international action, a senior US Democratic senator, Jack Reed, said on Sunday.

"This has to be an international operation, it can't be a unilateral American approach," Reed said on CBS television's Face the Nation show. "It has to have support internationally, not just politically, but militarily," he said, adding that Washington could not get into a "general military operation in Syria."
