Moscow, Russia’s Permanent Representative to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) Alexander Shulgin said that the accusations against Syria made by some Western states in the OPCW are fabricated and motivated by geopolitical interests.

“The accusations against Syria are far-fetched,” Shulgin emphasized. “They are motivated by a geopolitical plot of those countries,” he went on saying.

It’s highly likely that Western states will pass a draft resolution on decreasing Syria’s rights and privileges under the pretext of Syria’s violation of the Chemical Weapons Convention, Shulgin told an event “The truth and the lie about the use of chemical weapons in Syria” held in the run-up to resuming the work of the 25th session of the member-states’ Conference.

The Russian Diplomat said that “We hope that those delegations, which will begin to work tomorrow and discuss this issue, will develop their own independent stance and will be able to pass a responsible decision.”

For her part, Chairwoman of the Syrian mission to the Organization for the Prohibition of chemical Weapons (OPCW) Rania al-Refaei called the states to reject the draft resolution prepared by western countries, noting that “it is directed against the Syria people.”
