#OPCW: Chemical weapons inspectors not yet allowed access to #Douma – UK delegation

| April 18, 2018

Inspectors have not yet been granted access to sites in Douma, Syria, the British delegation to the Organization for the Prohibition for Chemical Weapons (OPCW) has said, citing the agency’s director general, writes Toby Sterling.

The inspectors arrived on Saturday (14 April) to examine whether chemical weapons were used at Douma on 7 April, and if so what kind.

The British delegation to the OPCW said in a statement posted on Twitter that Russia and Syria had not yet allowed inspectors access to Douma.
“Unfettered access (is) essential” the statement said. “Russia and Syria must co-operate.”
Russia’s deputy foreign minister said the delay was due to US air strikes.
