Alwaght-Syria has invited the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) to send a team from the fact-finding mission to visit Douma and investigate claims related to the alleged use of chemical weapons there.

In a statement to SANA, the Syrian Foreign Ministry said that in response to the false allegations made by some Western states against Syria regarding the alleged use of chemical weapons in the city of Douma on April 7th 2018, Damascus has sent an official invitation via its permanent mission at the Hague to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) to send a team from the fact-finding mission to visit Douma and probe claims related to the alleged use of chemical weapons there and identify the facts related to these allegations.

Syria has reiterated its firm condemnation of any use of chemical weapon by anyone and under any circumstances and anywhere, it affirms its commitment to cooperating with the OPCW to uncover the truth about the claims being promoted by some Western sides to justify their hostile intentions and political goals.

The source went on to say that Syria welcomes the visit of the fact-finding team, and that it intends to provide all necessary support to the mission to carry out its task, and that it hopes that the mission will conduct its work with full transparency and rely on tangible and credible evidence.

Meanwhile, the international chemical weapons watchdog has confirmed it will send a fact-finding mission to Douma, Syria, to investigate the reports of an attack there. The move follows calls from Moscow and Damascus to launch an international investigation.

Today, the OPCW Technical Secretariat has requested the Syrian Arab Republic to make the necessary arrangements for such a deployment. This has coincided with a request from the Syrian Arab Republic and the Russian Federation to investigate the allegations of chemical weapons use in Douma. The team is preparing to deploy to Syria shortly,” the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) said in a statement on Tuesday.

Damascus has called the alleged attack a “fabrication.” Russian military specialists have explored the area as Jaysh al-Islam terrorists occupying Douma began to evacuate from the city as part of a Russian-brokered deal with Damascus. Moscow said the specialists had found no traces of chemical weapons or any victims treated for chemical poisoning.
