Syria denies use of chemical weapons
“We will facilitate the arrival of the team to anywhere they want, in Douma, to check whether or not there was any use of chemical weapons,” Syria’s Ambassador to the UN Bashar al-Jaafari told reporters, while discussing the mission of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), which is on its way to Syria. It will begin work on Saturday, according to OPCW spokesperson.
The OPCW engaged two separate groups who are expected to arrive on 12 and 13 of April to Damascus.
Previously Al-Jafari claimed toxic agents, used during the military conflict in Syria, have been illegally brought into the country from Libya with the assistance of the United Kingdom, Saudi Arabia, United States, Turkey and France, Syria’s UN envoy Bashar al-Jaafari said.
