UNETD NATIONS, September 16 (Itar-Tass) - The report presented by the U.N. mission that investigated the alleged use of chemical weapons in Syria is filled with technical details and needs to be studied thoroughly, Russian Permanent Representative to the United Nations Vitaly Churkin said.

“This is a serious but very technical report. It avoids categorical assessments and conclusions,” he added.

The report says that chemical weapons were used in Syria “on a relatively large scale.”

Churkin said that the report contained no clear indications as to who was responsible for the use of chemical weapons in Damascus’ suburb on August 21.

“There are no solid conclusions and data” to indicate clearly that the Syrian government or the opposition is to be held accountable for the chemical weapons attacks, he said.

“In the process of further review everyone will be able to make their own conclusions and we can only hope that they will be professional, not inspired by some political pressure,” Churkin said.
