Russian Federation and U.S. at odds over keeping Syria chemical experts

Russian Federation and U.S. at odds over keeping Syria chemical experts”

The United Nations Security Council will hold a vote on Thursday to repeat an worldwide inquiry on the chemical weapon use in Syria.

Rycroft said the majority of the Security Council's 15 member states supported the US resolution and he wasn't aware of any substantial meetings between Russian Federation and the U.S.to reach a compromise.

Russian Federation and the USA have failed to resolve a dispute over extending the mandate of a UN-backed investigative team that blamed Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's forces for a chemical weapons attack in April that killed more than 80 people.

The President affirmed that Syria has adopted the right policies in the face of those followed by some regional and Western countries that have sought to achieve their interests through spreading chaos in and disrupting the stability of an important and sensitive region like the Middle East without considering the disastrous results that may ensue from that. "The only victor would be the people who want to use chemical weapons in Syria - Assad and the Islamic State".

Addressing the council, US Ambassador Nikki Haley assailed the veto as a "deep blow", saying "Russia has killed the investigative mechanism which has overwhelming support of this council".

The Kremlin sharply criticized the JIM after its latest report blamed the Assad regime for a sarin gas attack on the opposition-held village of Khan Sheikhoun that killed dozens.

Bowling Green man charged with assaulting Sen. Paul
Paul's office said in a statement the former Republican presidential candidate "was blindsided and the victim of an assault". Hodges did say that Boucher is an acquaintance of Paul, an ophthalmologist who was elected to the Senate in 2010.

Russia's move drew harsh criticism from US Ambassador Nikki Haley, who said Russian Federation had struck a "deep blow" to United Nations efforts to identify those using chemical weapons and deter future attacks.

The mandate for the joint inquiry by the United Nations and the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), which found the Syrian government used the banned nerve agent sarin in an April 4 attack, expires at midnight Thursday.

"Let there be no doubt: we have unleashed a monster here", said Delattre.

French Ambassador Francois Delattre said the Russian veto was a blow to global efforts to curb the use of chemical weapons.

Russian Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia said this week that scrapping the chemical weapons probe in Syria "may send a bad signal, but the way the investigation has been conducted sends an even worse signal".

The JIM experts also said they were "confident" the Islamic State extremist group was responsible for an attack at Um Hosh in Aleppo in September 2016 using mustard gas.
