MOSCOW, November 8 (Itar-Tass) - Russia considers the U.S. statements saying Syria would withhold information on chemical arsenals unfounded, Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said on Friday.
“Such unfounded statements can be interpreted as disrespect for the activity of the authoritative organisations in Syria [the U.N. and the OPCW - Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons],” the diplomat said.
Earlier, Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister said the task for eliminating chemical weapons in Syria would be carried out by the middle of 2014.
