MOSCOW, April 12. /TASS/. Russia supports the appeal of Damascus to the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons (OPCW) about the direction in Syria a representative of an international group with a balanced personnel structure, which is necessary in order to treat with confidence to the conclusions of such a mission. This was stated in an interview with TASS Director of the Department for nonproliferation and arms control (DNCW), the Russian foreign Ministry Mikhail Ulyanov.

“Damascus has shown maximum openness and fact – he said. – This appeal, we fully support and believe that this is the only way forward. However, while willingness on the part of our Western partners to take a constructive position of Damascus, we do not observe”.

The OPCW is idle

The OPCW still has not taken any real steps to investigate the incident near the Syrian village of Khan shaykhun, said Ulyanov.
