Referring to significance of the OPCW’s investigations in Douma, he said that US, UK, France vetoed a Russian proposed resolution for clarifying the event in Douma in Security Council and launched attack on Syria several days later.
“They are arguing that the experts can undertake investigation even without any resolution,” he said.
According to Ryabkov, missile attack once again revealed baselessness of these countries’ claims on chemical attack in Douma.
US, UK, France attacked Syria with over 100 missiles in response to alleged chemical attack.
Western nations, particularly France, the United States and the United Kingdom, have blamed the forces of Syrian President Bashar Assad for the attack, but he denies using chemical weapons in Douma.
