Lavrov said resolution 2118 of the UN Security Council demanded “keeping chemical weapons and their components from out of the hands of non-state actors, first of all having in mind terrorists and extremists”. “It was emphasized that special responsibility was first of all with neighbouring on Syria countries, that are responsible for not allowing the use of their territories for such dishonest goals,” Lavrov said. “We will seek a strict compliance with these decisions of the UN Security Council,” he added.
