OPCW experts to start work in Syria on Saturday

OPCW experts to start work in Syria on Saturday”

"The UN Charter is very clear on these issues", Mr Guterres said in a statement issued by his spokesperson. Kitco Metals Inc. and the author of this article do not accept culpability for losses and/ or damages arising from the use of this publication.

The Swedish-drafted text calls for the establishment of an investigative panel to identify the perpetrators of chemical weapons use in Syria after Russian Federation this week vetoed a United States proposal to set up such a mechanism.

"President Trump has warned via tweet that "missiles will be coming" to Syria to enforce the norm against using chemical weapons", she says.

A medical specialist from the Syrian Arab Red Crescent, Muhammad Adnan Tabazhu, claimed that the medics obtained no evidence of chemical weapons being used in Eastern Ghouta between 2012 and 2018 when he was working in the area.

"A chemical escalation in Syria is not acceptable", Le Drian said, calling the strikes "proportional and targeted".

Russian Federation has said it had dispatched experts to Douma who had not found any evidence of chemical weapons use.

The COI recalled that it has documented 34 incidents of chemical weapons use "by various parties to the conflict".

Another Russian senator, Vladimir Dzhabarov, said on Saturday that it is likely that Moscow would call for a meeting of the UN Security Council to discuss US, British, and French air strikes on Syria.

He said, however, a military strike would be justified as an act of self-defense and the president has the authority to order one.

The Kremlin said on Friday in its readout of the phone call between the two presidents that Putin and Macron agreed to ask their foreign policy chiefs to "keep in close contact" to "de-escalate" the situation in Syria. "We can not take such risks", he said at a forum.

He said the Security Council had "primary responsibility" for the maintenance of global peace and security and called on the members of the Security Council to "unite and exercise" that responsibility.

The ambassador said Syria had "denied 1,000 times" reports that its forces had carried out chemical attacks.

A suspected chemical attack outside the Syrian capital of Damascus reportedly left more than 40 people dead.

"God forbid anything adventurous will be done in Syria along the lines of the Libyan and Iraqi experience", Lavrov told a news conference, referring to past Western military interventions elsewhere in the region. He strongly backed the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons' fact-finding mission to investigate last weekend's suspected poison gas attack in the Damascus suburb of Douma, saying the first OPCW team is already in Syria and "a second is expected today or tomorrow". He didn't elaborate or name the state.

Moscow has called for a thorough investigation into the alleged attack to be conducted before conclusions are drawn.
