BEIJING, September 23 (Itar-Tass) - China is set to send its specialists to inspect and destroy chemical weapons in Syria, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said at a meeting with UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Monday.
“The Chinese side expresses support for the start of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons’ unbiased, fair and professional activity and wants to send its specialists to participate in the inspection and destruction of Syria’s chemical weapons,” he said. “At the same time liquidation of Syria’s chemical weapons and political solution of the Syrian problem should proceed in parallel courses.”
Earlier, September 19, Russia’s Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu stated that Russia is ready to provide its assistance in the transportation and destruction of Syrian chemical weapons. “We have enterprises to dispose such weapons, but there is a gap between “we are ready” and “we can,”” he said, when asked whether Russia could offer its services to dispose Syria’s chemical weapons. He did not give a straight answer, noting only that Russia would have its say only as a member of an international coalition, “should it be decided this way.”
Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich has also offered services of Ukrainian specialists in liquidating chemical weapons in Syria when speaking at the Yalta European Strategy session September 20.
