UNITED NATIONS, September 25 (Itar-Tass) - Russia and the United States proceed from the assumption that in Syria all chemical weapons must be eliminated, for there is suspicion that part (of chemical weapons) is in the hands of the opposition, RF Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said here at the close of a meeting with US Secretary of State John Kerry.
"The meeting with State Secretary Kerry was devoted to many issues, the main of them being Syria and, first of all, the preparation of a decision of the Executive Council of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) and a UN Security Council resolution that is being prepared in support of a decision as regards actions that must be performed to eliminate chemical weapons in Syria," the Minister said.
"Moreover, we emphasized both on the Russian and American sides that the aforementioned resolution and decision must refer to the elimination of all chemical weapons which are available in Syria, because there are serious apprehensions that it may so happen that the opposition possesses part of components of those injurious materials," he pointed out.
