The head of the Ministry of foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation Sergey Lavrov held telephone talks with U.S. Secretary of state Rex Tillerson in connection with the position of the United States regarding the conduct of a thorough check of the use of chemical weapons in Syria.
We are talking about what the US government voted against the direction of the inspectors in the Syrian town of Khan Sheyhun to check the use of toxic substances April 4, as well as the presence of similar substances at the airport «Sirat». Commenting on the decision of the United States, Sergei Lavrov expressed his regret.
The representatives of the Syrian opposition reported earlier that due to the chemical attack in Khan Sheyhun 80 people were killed, more than 200 were injured. However, the government of Syria has stated that the entire stock of chemical weapons were removed from the country under the control of the OPCW.
