01.12.2016 - Remarks to the press by Ambassador Vitaly Churkin, Permanent Representative of the Russian Federation to the United Nations, following the Security Council consultations on Syria

Q: Ambassador, the UK and France are drafting a resolution to sanction people linked to chemical weapons attacks… V.Churkin: I hope they keep drafting because they have been speaking about it as an urgent matter for such a long time without producing any drafts. But to be more serious we believe that first of all JIM has been working very hard in a very professional way but they were given a task and put in a situation that would not allow them to produce credible evidence. The only credible thing I think is the fact that terrorists used mustard gas. As for the Syrian Government, we gave you a very detailed expert analysis of their results and we believe they just don’t contain enough information to accuse anybody of anything. I suppose this is one of the reasons why it takes so long to draft a resolution they have been talking about.
