WASHINGTON, September 26 (Itar-Tass) - The Syrian government is fulfilling its chemical weapons obligations, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said in an interview with the Washington Post published on Wednesday.
He recalled that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad addressed the secretary general of the United Nations and the director general of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) with a formal request to accede to the Chemical Weapons Convention.
“And the steps of the Syrian government indicate clearly that they are fulfilling their obligations under this convention,” Lavrov said.
