UN demands full access to chemical attack site – “White Helmets” evidence won’t do anymore

The UN Secretary General António Gutteres demands that the experts of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) have full access to the site of the alleged chemical attack in Syria.

“It is critically important that they have full and unimpeded access to determine if chemical weapons were used,” he said. At the same time, he noted that the OPCW lacks the authority to identify the perpetrators.

The West accused Damascus of a chemical attack in Duma. Moscow has warned of possible provocations a number of days ago.

    Russia asked the UN to send OPCW inspectors to Ghouta during the UN meeting on Monday evening. The 9th April.
    The Russian Ambassador asked them to go to the alleged site as early as today ,the 10th April under the protection of the Russian Military Police.

      After being invited the demands are bluster to demonstrate how firm the OPCW can be. Pity OPCW was not able to demonstrate such firmness last autumn and refused to visit the air base from which an attack was allegedly launched.
