Moscow is calling on the international community to realize its responsibility to prevent regular provocations with chemical weapons in Syria, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.

“I would still not talk about the risk of using chemical weapons, but about the risk of provocations using chemical weapons in order to blame the Syrian government afterward, because such a provocation is being prepared, there is no doubt. Both in the UN and in The Hague, where the headquarters of the OPCW is located, we submitted concrete facts that were obtained from different sources,” Lavrov said.

The minister also called on the international community to realize its responsibility for preventing regular provocation with chemical weapons in Syria.

“It is necessary to make efforts so that the international organizations feel their responsibility for the provocations being planned [in Syria] and speak up against such attempts,” Lavrov stressed.

The Russian Foreign Minister stated that Syria had every right to chase “terrorists” out of the rebel-held Syrian enclave of Idlib, emphasizing that talks were ongoing to set up humanitarian corridors there.

“In this area, in this de-escalation zone, there must be a separation of the armed opposition, ready for dialogue with the government, from terrorists of Jabhat al-Nusra [banned in Russia] and other organizations recognized as terrorist by the UN Security Council. Terrorists oppose such separation,” Lavrov said.

He said terrorists “are trying financially and by other means, including through intimidation, not to let the armed groups that do not make part of Jabhat al-Nusra… leave the area and even force them to cooperate with them.”

Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem has warned of possible US-UK-French aggression and of the disastrous consequences of Western attempts to destabilize the country.

He also stated that the White Helmets had kidnapped 44 children in Idlib to use in a staged chemical attack.

On August 25, the Russian Defense Ministry’s spokesman, Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov, said that terrorists of the Tahrir al-Sham group (affiliated with the Jabhat Nusra* terror organization) were preparing a provocation in Syria’s western Idlib province to accuse Syrian government forces of using chemical weapons against civilians.

Since Russians monitor it all, preventing it to happen might be a bit easy… for them! Bomb the chemical agents with thermobarics : at about 2000°C, no chemical agent resists such a heat, molecules are all disrupted in far smaller chains… Then start a serious hostage liberation operation using Spetsnaz… Or do the Russian want this to happen in the end? Let me be clear : either UN or OPCW are not structured to prevent any event to happen. They’re no military forces. At best, UN can do peace-keeping once the conflict is resolving, it’s even UN biggest budget, e.g.… Read more »

Enough with the crying out loud of the militants and provocation already. Russia and Syria government are starting to sound pathetic. Wether the militants in Idlib pull of a chemical attack or Saa civilians will have to die in conquering this territory from aerial bombardment. In which Saa and Russian henchman are known for. So so what if American Crusader Coalition bombs Saa into a ruinous heap. What goes around. Comes around. Looking forward to Saa getting a does of there own medicine.

Civilians who have given themselves as human shield to Muslim Jihad may as well die. And they can rot in h**l/Naströnd with their Jihadi terrorist brethren.
