Moscow: Reports about the use of chemical weapons by ISIS in Syria, Iraq

Moscow ~ Spokesperson of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova said on Thursday that many reports of different sources talked lately about the use of chemical weapons by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and other terrorist organizations in Syria and Iraq against government forces and civilians.

“The situation has deteriorated, if compared with the last year, when first cases were registered about the use of poisonous materials by extremist forces,” Zakharova said at a weekly press conference, adding that the use of extremists for these materials has acquired a large-scale, systematized and beyond-border feature.

She affirmed that it is possible that this form of terrorist activity would expand beyond the borders of Syria and Iraq and even beyond the borders of the Middle East in the worst cases.

“In this regard, we see that the UN Security Council has to take a suitable reaction to this danger,” Zakharova said, adding that it is not probable for the Security Council and Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons to remain silent towards the terrorist, beyond-border chemical activity.

She affirmed the Russian support to Syria in combating terrorism.

“Concerning the technical, military cooperation between Russia and Syria, it was not a secret at all… this is our principled track to offer an aid to Damascus in order to fight terrorism,” Zakharova added.

On the mission of UN Envoy to Syria Staffan de Mistura, Zakharova said “we see it is useful for de Mistura and his team to work and cooperate firmly with regional sides, mainly with Damascus.”
