Syrian Permanent Representative to the United Nations Bashar Jaafari voiced Damascus’ readiness to provide unlimited assistance to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) mission coming to the city of Douma in order to investigate an alleged chemical attack.
“My country Syria stresses its unlimited cooperation with the OPCW to fulfill the commitments stated in the convention of the prohibition of the development, production, stockpiling and use of chemical weapons,” Jaafari said during an emergency meeting on Syria at the UN Security Council on Monday.
Moreover, Syria does not have any chemicals weapons including chlorine that was allegedly used over the weekend in Douma, Jaafari added.
“The Syrian Arabic Republic stresses once again it does not possess any chemical weapons of any type, including chlorine,” Jaafari said on Monday.
Jaafari meanwhile, stressed that Syria condemns the use of chemical arms anywhere and under any circumstances.
The envoy noted that Syria has submitted 144 letters containing the information that terrorist groups have toxic chemical substances, which would be used to prepare for crimes. He said that the terrorists were working with White Helmets to fabricate the evidence and to create staged dramatic scenes to influence public opinion against the government of Syria.
Jaafari directly accused Washington, Paris, London and their allies in providing weapons to terrorists and preparing aggressions against Syria.
