MOSCOW, August 23 (Itar-Tass) - The Syrian opposition has not given any signals on its readiness to ensure security and an efficient work of U.N. experts on a territory controlled by terrorists, Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said on Friday.
“We maintain permanent contacts with Syrian leaders by encouraging them to develop constructive cooperation with U.N. experts. We believe that Damascus takes an important decision to allow the arrival by the U.N. High Commissioner for Disarmament Affairs,” the diplomat said.
“This hampers an objective investigation into reports on a possible use of chemical weapons in Syria. Several countries, including Russia, insist on this,” Lukashevich said.
“Thus, we urge those who should influence the opposition to take necessary steps towards allowing international experts to fulfil their tasks,” the spokesman said.
