The Debate - OPCW's Syria Cover-up

PressTV 81 views
Syria has strongly condemned a recent report by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons that blamed Damascus for a 2018 attack in Idlib province. Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad said the report contains false conclusions that represent another scandal for the global chemical weapons watchdog. He said the US and its allies which back terrorist groups in Syria are using the watchdog and Syria’s chemical file as a political tool, and that chemical attacks had been "staged" in Syria in order to incriminate Damascus. On Monday, the OPCW said the Syrian army had dropped a chlorine bomb on a residential area in Idlib back in 2018. Syria has denied any involvement in the chemical attacks as the country had destroyed its chemical weapons stockpile under a 2013 agreement.
