Moscow: Some western countries are bent on distorting facts about alleged chemical attack in Douma

Moscow, SANA- Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, Maria Zakharova, stated on Saturday that some Western countries continue to distort the facts about the alleged chemical attack in the city of Douma in Damascus Countryside.

Moscow is outraged at the “distortion of facts” by some Western politicians regarding the alleged chemical weapons attack in Douma, Syria, Novosti agency quoted Zakharova as saying.

Zakharova added Russia urges Western states to refrain from hindering the investigation of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) into the April 7 alleged chemical attack in Syria’s city of Douma.

She also said that OPCW delay in sending an investigation team to Syria is “unacceptable”

The spokeswoman stressed that Moscow expected from the inspectors an impartial investigation, noting that the attempts by the OPCW to visit less places connected to chemical attack and question less eyewitnesses raise serious concerns.

“It demonstrates the unwillingness to shed light on yet another made-up provocation with the use of toxins, which served as a reason for the missile strike of the three western countries, members of the UN Security Council,” Zakharova concluded.
