July 13, 2013
Russia urged the US to review the confirmed information and to stop giving inaccurate interpretations of the situation regarding possible use of chemical weapons in Syria.
Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesman, Alexander Lukashevich said ”the US statement is an inaccurate interpretation of the state of affairs regarding the international investigation in the use of chemical weapons in Syria.”
Lukashevich was commenting on the claims made by Jen Psaki, the spokesperson for the United States Department which accused Russia of hindering the UN Security Council efforts to ensure the access of UN experts to probe into possible use of chemical weapons in Syria.
Russia’s Permanent Representative to the UN, Vitaly Churkin, said on Tuesday that Moscow is exerting efforts with the UN Security Council to facilitate UN experts’ access into Syria to investigate the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian opposition on March 19th in Khan al-Assal in Aleppo countryside.
