Syria: chemical weapons inspectors barred from Douma site


The UK’s OPCW delegation tweeted: “Russia & Syria have not yet allowed access to Douma. Russia & Syria must cooperate.”The Russian deputy envoy at the UN, Dmitry Polyanskiy, said the obstacles were caused by the western bombing. Russian military officials were at the site of the Douma attack days before the OPCW reached Damascus. The suspicion is that the Syrian government previously misled inspectors when it declared its entire chemical weapons stockpile had been disclosed and destroyed. Failure to act to hold perpetrators to account will only risk further barbaric use of chemical weapons, in Syria and beyond.”
