According to a correspondent of RIA Novosti, Russia and China have decided not to participate in the meeting of the UN Security Council on the issue of Syrian chemical weapons. A Security Council spokesman told the publication that Moscow and Beijing saw no value in discussing the issue.
The Russian side has repeatedly said that the repeated meetings of the Security Council on this topic are useless. At one of the previous meetings, Russia’s first deputy permanent representative to the UN, Dmitry Polyansky, said the reports of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) on Syria were copies compliant.
In their speech at the last meeting of the UN Security Council, the OPCW representatives said that they had not received the requested information from Syria and continued the politicized accusations against the Syrian authorities, using the same pads.
Russia and the Syrian government have repeatedly accused the OPCW of bias in investigating incidents on the territory of the Arab Republic and questioned the conclusions of the technical secretariat. Syrian authorities have said they have never used chemical weapons against civilians and terrorists, and the country’s entire chemical arsenal has been removed from Syria under OPCW control.
