UNITED NATIONS, October 11 (Itar-Tass) - Russia will send more chemical weapons experts to Syria, Russian permanent representative at the United Nations Organization Vitaly Churkin told journalists on Thursday.
“Russian experts are already there [in Syria],” he said. “More experts will be sent.” He said that now there were no restrictions limiting the number of specialists from permanent member states of the United Nations Security Council (Russia, China, France, the United States, and Great Britain) who could take part in the destruction of Syrian arsenals of poisonous substances.
According to Churkin, Russia is ready “in principle” to offer technical assistance to Syria in the process of disposal of chemical weapons.
