MOSCOW, December 13, 22:45 /ITAR-TASS/. Russia will supply vehicles and equipment to transport Syria’s chemical substances from storage facilities to the port of Latakia to be subsequently loaded onboard Norwegian and British ships, Russian Permanent Representative at the United Nations Vitaly Churkin told the Russia 24 television channel on Friday.
“Russia is taking an active part in it,” he said. “Russia will supply hardware and equipment to be used to transport chemical substances from storage facilities to the port, where they will be placed with Norwegian and British ships.”
“Yesterday, an American colleague told me that they had found a country that was ready to offer their port for transshipping,” Churkin said, adding that Norway and Denmark had expressed their readiness to allocate ships to transport chemicals but the delay had been over determining the port of registration.
