Haley called for an end to “political games” in the matter of the investigation hematic in Syria
UN 3 Nov. /TASS/. The U.S. permanent representative to the UN, Nikki Haley called on Friday members of the Security Council of the world organization to stop the “political games” and extend the mandate of the Joint UN and OPCW (CMP) for the investigation of chemical attacks in Syria.
In a written statement she commented on the new report of the Organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons, which confirms the use of poison sarin gas in the village of El-Glutamine in the province of HOMS March 30, 2017.
“We have again seen a confirmed case of use of chemical weapons against innocent Syrians. If the UN Security Council immediately extend the mandate of the CMP, it will not be an independent, unbiased tool to identify those responsible for these terrible attacks,” — says the diplomat.
According to her, the last time this issue was considered in the UN security Council, “one country — Russia — has prevented extending these investigations.” “The United States will continue to work in good faith with partners in the Security Council on maintenance of work of construction, as we know that there are other attacks that should be investigated. Now more than ever, members of the Security Council it is necessary to abandon political games and to fulfill their duty, protecting the world from chemical attacks,” the statement reads Haley, circulated by the permanent mission of the United States.
