Russian Deputy Foreign Minister, Gennady Gatilov, said on Tuesday that the UN investigation mission on the use of chemical weapons in Syria cannot enter the country because there is no consensus on the mission.
Russia Today website reported Gatilov as saying that the desire of the UN to investigate in all Syrian territories is not acceptable for Damascus.
Gatilov pointed out that expanding the mission is not acceptable for the Syrian authorities because it means unlimited inspection and unspecified mission in terms of time and size.
