US Says Vote Likely Monday on Syrian Chemical Weapons Probe

who is responsible for chemical weapons attacks in Syria
The United States put a resolution that would extend the work of inspectors seeking to determine who is responsible for chemical weapons attacks in Syria into a final form and said a vote is likely on Monday.

The US Mission to the United Nations sent reporters the brief final text of the resolution late Friday which would extend the mandate of the Joint Investigative Mechanism, known as the JIM, for another year, AP reported.

Russia, a close ally of Syria, has criticized the JIM and it is unclear whether it would veto the resolution.

Russian Ambassador Mikhail Ulyanov, who heads the country's delegation to the General Assembly's disarmament committee, told UN reporters on Oct. 13 that Russia wants to wait for a JIM report, expected Oct. 26, on the chemical attack in Khan Sheykhoun that killed over 90 people before making a decision.
