MOSCOW, September 27 (Itar-Tass) - The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) plays a key role in resolving the chemical problem in Syria, the Russian Foreign Ministry reported.
The ministry commented on a meeting between Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and the BRICS colleagues on the sidelines of the 68th session of the U.N. General Assembly.
“We wait for a resolution from the OPCW and the U.N. Security Council in support of the Russian-American agreements with impatience,” the ministry said.
The ministers urged the Syrian government and the opposition to sign a ceasefire agreement immediately. They said, “There is ‘a new hope’ to settle the Syrian conflict by peaceful means.”
