Syrian Foreign Ministry rejects OPCW conclusions on chemical attack

Damascus, Jan 29 (Prensa Latina) The Syrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Sunday rejected the report by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) about the chemical weapon attack that occurred in the Syrian city of Douma, 15 kilometers east of this capital, in April 2018.

The conclusions of the OPCW Investigation and Identification Team (IIT)’s report on the alleged chlorine use incident in Douma lack scientific and objective evidence, the Foreign Ministry stated in a communiqué.

It added that no sane person can reach misleading conclusions and proves once again the integrity of the Syrian position that always claimed that the OPCW reports lack credibility.

The text noted that the report’s authors neglected the objective observations presented by the organization’s state parties, experts, academics, and former OPCW inspectors, known for their experience and knowledge, which reaffirmed that this incident was fabricated.

According to the communiqué, Damascus and many other countries have always questioned the legitimacy of the Investigation and Identification Team, which was established without a legal framework at the initiative of the United States, the United Kingdom, and France.

The Foreign Ministry called on all States and the United Nations to assume their responsibilities to preserve the OPCW’s independence, credibility, and future.
