Netherlands: Russia's OPCW envoy condemns 'cynical approach' to Syria gas probe

Netherlands, The Hague
November 28, 2017 at 16:55 GMT -00:00 · Published

Russia condemned the "cynical approach” to the OPCW-UN JIM Syria chemical weapons probe during a speech at The Hague on Tuesday and accused Western colleagues of using the situation "for their own geo-political ambitions."

Speaking at the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) Russia's Permanent Representative to the Organisation for Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPWC) Alexander Shulgin, said: "this cynical approach has [gone] against the draft resolution of Russia, China and Bolivia, and has killed the mechanism," which he said "shows that they're trying to use any credible international organisation - the UN, the OPCW and anybody else - for their own geo-political ambitions in Syria and in the Middle East."

The CWC entered into force in 1997. It outlaws the production, stockpiling, and use of chemical weapons and their precursors. Three UN member states (Egypt, North Korea and South Sudan) have neither signed nor acceded to the treaty.

La CWC entró en vigor en 1997. Prohíbe la producción, el almacenamiento y el uso de armas químicas y sus precursores. Tres estados miembros de la ONU (Egipto, Corea del Norte y Sudán del Sur) aún no han firmado ni se han adherido al tratado.
