UNITED NATIONS, September 28 (Itar-Tass) - The responsibility for effecting the UN Security Council resolution on Syria’s chemical weapons rests upon both the Syrian authorities and the opposition, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Friday after the voting in the UN Security Council.
“The responsibility for complying with that resolution rests not only upon the Syrian government. In accordance with the UN Security Council requirements the Syrian Opposition, too, is obliged to cooperate with international experts,” Lavrov said at a meeting of the Security Council.
“By joining the chemical weapons ban convention Syria in fact began to act on its commitments by providing a detailed declaration on the condition of its chemical weapons arsenal to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons,” Lavrov said. “Russia proceeds from the assumption that Damascus will continue to interact with international inspectors constructively and diligently.”
