Gatilov: West raises trivial objections over Syria chemicals removal
Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov said the process of removing Syria’s chemical weapons has come to an end, with the Syrian government fulfilling its commitments in this regard.

“We believe that Syria has fulfilled its obligations, and the remainder is not that significant as regards the ultimate goal of having fully chemical weapons in Syria fully dispensed with,” Gatilov was quoted as saying to Russian journalists.

“Nonetheless,” he added, “Western states are trying to raise doubts about Syria, alleging it might have hidden toxic materials.”

“Just yesterday, the issue was brought up at the [UN] Security Council in response to Western attempts to raise trivial objections or find faults in the process…We made it quite clear that the chemical weapons removal in Syria has been complete. End of story,” said the Russian official.

Applauding the “commendable’ level of cooperation shown by Damascus as deserving “positive appreciation”, Gatilov said “I will be wrong were I to find anything that might cast a shadow on the Syrian stance.”

Earlier on Tuesday, Sigrid Kaag, the Special Coordinator for the OPCW-UN Joint Mission announced that “the total of the declared chemical materials which had been destroyed or transferred amounted to 100 percent.”

Kaag hailed, in this regard, the Syrian government which has always shown a desire to work constructively for positive ends to be reached.
