MOSCOW, August 29 (Itar-Tass) - The U.N. Security Council should consider the cases of possible use of chemical weapons in Syria comprehensively, the chemical weapon inspectors should present a report on the issue to the UN Security Council, spokesman for the Russian Foreign Ministry Alexander Lukashevich said on Thursday.

“Along with a suburb of Damascus, inspections should be conducted at three other places, including Khan al-Assal, outside Aleppo,” he noted. “Therefore, the inspectors should complete their mission and produce a report in the U.N. Security Council. If some more time is needed for these purposes, an opportunity for this is stipulated in the agreement (between the Syrian authorities and the UN Secretariat on August 13, 2013 - Itar-Tass), moreover, the Syrian side said the country is prepared for this,” Lukashevich said.
