26 October، 2016

Damascus, SANA-Foreign and Expatriates Ministry affirmed on Wednesday that the latest accusations against Syria which were included in the report of joint inquiry of the UN and Organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons (OPCW), formed according to Security council resolution No.2235, were not based on any tangible evidence and they didn’t reflect any objectivity or accuracy in their conclusions.

“The Syrian Arab republic has repeatedly denied all allegations circulated by some western departments and their tools about the use of chemical poisonous materials by Syrian sides, like chlorine gas, during military acts which take place between the Syrian Arab armed forces and the terrorist groups,” the Ministry said in a statement about a report by the joint international inquiry mechanism.

It added that, in light of its commitment to the principle of transparency, the Syrian government has cooperated with the demands of inquiry conducted by international commissions since 2014 until now, and it offered all necessary facilities to have credible and fair inquires.

“Syria has repeatedly warned against repercussions of politicizing this issue regarding the credibility of the work of international relevant sides,” the Ministry said.

It added that the government of Syrian Arab Republic, while fully rejects the accusations included in the reports of that mechanism, affirms its commitment to carry out all its obligations when it joined the treaty of Chemical weapons convention.
