UNITED NATIONS, August 30 (Itar-Tass) - During a closed-door meeting of the Permanent Members of the UN Security Council on Thursday, Russia was busy trying to convince the Western countries of the need for a continuation of investiation by UN experts into a supposed use of chemical weapons in Syria, an informed source at the UN headquarters told Itar-Tass.
"Discussion at the meeting dealt with the need for a continuation of the inspections concerning chemical weapons. Russian diplomats also insisted on the need to carry on efforts towards a political settlement (of the situation) in Syria and towards convening a Geneva-2 conference," the source said. As a result of the meeting, each side "stuck to its own opinion," the source pointed out.
