Western chemical weapons in Syria indicate true attitude to international law

Nikki Haley
Evidence of chemical agents supplied to Syrian militants by the United States and the UK shows the degree of Western capitals' commitment to international law, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova wrote on her Facebook page.

"Here you can see all their commitment to international law and the triumph of democracy. Supplying chemical agents to terrorists and using photos of killed children as a pretext is beyond one’s comprehension," she noted commenting on the Syrian Foreign Ministry’s statement.

On Wednesday, Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad told a news conference in Damascus that chemical agents found at arms depots abandoned by gunmen suggest they were delivered to terrorists from the US and the UK. He noted that the special warfare means that had been founded included hand grenades and grenades for grenade launchers, which are supplied with CS and CN irritant agents.

According to Mekdad, these chemical agents were manufactured by Federal Laboratories (the USA), Cherming Defence UK and NonLethal Technologies (the USA).


  1. Если подтвердятся сообщения о поставке в Сирию отравляющих веществ из США и Великобритании, данный факт будет считаться нарушением Конвенции о запрещении химического оружия...

    Об этом заявил постпред России при ООН Василий Небензя, передает телеканал "Россия 24".
    МИД Сирии ранее заявил, что отравляющие вещества, найденные на складах боевиков в Алеппо и Дамаске, были произведены компаниями из США и Великобритании. Лондон эти сообщения уже опроверг.
    По словам дипломата, на состоявшемся в среду, 16 августа, закрытом совещании Совета Безопасности ООН эта тема не поднималась, передает ТАСС. "Я видел это в новостях, но мы это не обсуждали", — сказал российский постпред. По его словам, проверкой этих утверждений потенциально может заняться Совместный механизм ООН и Организации по запрещению химического оружия (СМР).

  2. Claims by a senior Syrian official that the United States and United Kingdom supplied militant groups in Syria with toxic agents might be verified by the UN investigation mission, Russian Ambassador to the United Nations Vasily Nebenzya said on Wednesday...

    "We have to see the confirmation," Nebenzya the UN Security Council. "That was the news, we didn’t discuss it, we didn’t comment on it but possibly that is in the mandate of JIM [Joint Investigation Mission] too."
