Moscow concerned over OPCW ignoring of facts confirming Douma attack was staged

Moscow, SANA – The Russian Foreign Ministry expressed concern over the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons’ ignoring of facts provided by Russia and Syria on the alleged use of chemical weapons in Douma.

Sputnik cited the Ministry as saying that the evasive conclusions made by the OPCW experts about the fact that there are “reasonable grounds” that chlorine had been used as a chemical weapon in the city of Douma, unfortunately suggest that the only purpose of the report was to “justify an act of aggression”, held on 14 April 2018 by the United States, the UK and France in violation of the UN Charter against a sovereign state.

The Ministry stressed in its statement that “We are concerned that the mission prefers to completely ignore the substantial information provided by the Russian and Syrian parties confirming that this chemical incident had been staged by the pseudo-humanitarian organization White Helmets.
