Russian FM says the US is misinterpreting chemical weapons issue
US ‘misinterprets’ chemical weapons issue in Syria – Russian Foreign Ministry
Moscow believes that the US State Department has permitted an incorrect interpretation of the situation regarding possible use of chemical weapons in Syria. Earlier this week State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki stated that Russia was blocking UN Security Council efforts to push for “an independent and credible investigation” of chemical attacks in Syria. “The statement is a misunderstanding of the real situation around the international investigation into the possible use of chemical weapons in Syria. Authors of such assessments either ignore or deliberately distort the situation,” Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Aleksandr Lukashevich replied.
