The United States rejected Russia’s proposal to create new investigative body to investigate a chemical attack in the Syrian province of Idlib. This was reported by UKRINFORM with reference to the Deputy press Secretary of U.S. state Department Mark Toner.
“The United States believes that it is not necessary to create a separate body or conduct a separate investigation on this chemical attack (in Syria – ed.), as suggested by the Russians. We believe that such mechanisms already exist,” – said the official representative of the state Department.
He said that is referring to the Organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons and the joint mechanism of investigation. Representatives of both international agencies already working on the place, collect and record all the facts relating to the chemical attack in Syria, said the representative of the administration.
