As United Nations officials re-iterate that their inspection team will soon be allowed into Syria to check out three sites of claimed chemical weapons attacks, I spoke with Monocle 24’s The Globalist Asia on Thursday night.

1. Will the UN team even make it into Syria, after months of effort?
2. If they do, is there any prospect of a full assessment of the claims over chemical weapons?
3. What are the politics around the issue?
