Syria must provide clarification on missing evidence in chemical weapons attack in Douma, says British representative to Organization of Prohibition of Chemical Weapons

DARAMSUQ — Permanent Representation of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland to the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons Organization (OPCW) Joanna Roper called on Syria to allow inspectors to enter its territory, accusing Damascus of violating its obligations regarding chemical weapons.

Syria should provide clarifications regarding the fate of the two cylinders that were found at the site of the chemical weapons attack in the city of Douma in 2018, said Roper.

In related news, the OPCW Director-General Fernando Arias expressed his concern about the procrastination in discussions with Damascus, stressing that the OPCW will not send the team of inspectors unless entry visas are issued to all its members.
