STRELNA, St Petersburg, September 5 (Itar-Tass) - Russia does not block the work of the U.N. Security Council and urges its partners to give an objective assessment to the situation in Syria, presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.
“Russia wants the situation in Syria to be discussed objectively and decisions to be taken without a verdict of U.N. experts, who work in Syria,” Peskov said, adding that the experts should and could draw a conclusion on the use of chemical weapons.
If chemical weapons are used, “then it will be necessary to examine who uses them”, the presidential spokesman said.
“We cannot agree with the proof, which is far from to be convincing. In his interview President Vladimir Putin called for avoiding the experience when the use of force was proved by any white power in a clear glass tube.” “We know that no weapons of mass destruction were used in Iraq,” Peskov said.
