MOSCOW, September 18 (Itar-Tass) - Russia is looking into additional materials provided by the Syrian side on the involvement of rebels in the chemical attack on August 21, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov told Tass by telephone from Damascus.
Ryabkov is currently visiting Damascus for consultations. He said Russia had received new documents. “We were told that they provide evidence of rebels’ involvement in the chemical attack,” he said.
“Russia has begun analyzing this additional information,” the deputy foreign minister said. “So far we cannot draw conclusions, but taking into consideration our conclusions as to the incident on March 19, we tend to seriously take the materials from the Syrian side on the involvement of rebels in the chemical attack on August 21,” the diplomat added.
