Russia says chem weapons pretext no longer valid
(MENAFN) Russia has stated that the need of a new inquiry into the alleged chemical weapons use in Syria is gone, as Washington and its allies have already played the role of judge.
addressing the Security Council which has been deadlocked over establishing a joint United Nations and Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) inquiry which ended in November, Russian UN Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia made the remarks on Tuesday while.
"The idea of creating a mechanism on attributing responsibility for the use of chemical weapons no longer makes any sense when Washington and its allies have already determined who's guilty and in essence are already acting like self-appointed executioners," said Nebenzia.
United States, Great Britain and France launched an offensive against Syria in the early hours of Saturday, under the pretext of chemical weapons use.
