MUNICH - US National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster said on Saturday that public reports showed that Syrian President Bashar Assad was using chemical weapons and added that it was time for the international community to hold the government accountable.

"Public accounts and photos clearly show that Assad's chemical weapons use is continuing," McMaster said while speaking at the Munich Security Conference.
