SYRIA DENIES USE OF TOXIC MATERIALS OR CHLORINE GAS IN GHOUTA
Syria’s Foreign and Expatriates Ministry said a new lie, misleading propaganda campaign, has been triggered by states that support terrorists, regarding new claims about the use of Chlorine gas by the Syrian state, in Eastern Ghouta.
This comes in the framework of a plot, that aims to hinder the implementation of international legitimacy resolutions, related to preserving Syria’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, a statement said.
Syria has lately seized, after liberating a number of regions in Hama countryside from terrorists, more than 40 tonnes of chlorine gas, in the presence of the Chemical Weapons Convention’s inspectors, the Foreign Ministry’s National Committee on implementing Syria’s obligations, according to its accession to CWC, said.
It added that, Syria has informed the UN and CWC of data about the entry of trucks loaded with poisonous substances, through the Baba al-Hawa crossing point, on Feb 22, 2018, and Jabaht al-Nusra’s hiding of weapons and Sarin gas, inside an archaeological region in Idleb countryside, on Feb 20, 2018.
The Syrian Arab Republic, which has repeatedly affirmed its non-possession of any form of chemical weapons, and its non-use of chlorine gas as a weapon, reiterates that, it is the first and forefront, in defending its citizens and in preventing the use of poisonous materials on its territory, the statement affirmed.
It concluded that, the Syrian Government condemns any use of such weapons, in any place and at any time.
