MOSCOW, December 19. /TASS/. Russia hopes that the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) will take into account Damascus’ information on the use of chlorine as chemical weapons by Syrian militants, the Foreign Ministry said on Friday.

“Due to the fact that the OPCW mission continues establishing facts of the possible use of chlorine as chemical weapons in Syria, on December 15 Damascus gave important information on the cases of seizing chlorine storage facilities by non-state subjects,” the ministry said.

“Thus, there are grounds for presuming upon the involvement of the Syrian armed opposition, primarily the so-called Islamic State, in using the mentioned toxic agencies for terrorist purposes,” the ministry said.

Russia “lauds the Syrian step that confirmed its drive for close cooperation with the international community in all issues over the implementation of obligations under the Convention for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons,” it said.
