US, Russia clash over chlorine attacks in Syria
    2018-February-7  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

THE United States and Russia clashed at the U.N. Security Council on Monday over a push by Washington to condemn reported chlorine gas attacks in Syria that have left many injured in recent days.

U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley told the council that there was “obvious evidence from dozens of victims” to corroborate the chlorine attacks in rebel-held Eastern Ghouta.

The United States proposed that the council adopt a statement condemning the reported Feb. 1 chlorine attack in the town of Douma that injured more than 20 civilians including children.

“It’s completely clear to us the goal is to basically accuse the Syrian Government of chemical weapons use where no perpetrators have been identified,” said Russian Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia.

The council met to discuss chemical weapons use in Syria after Russia used its veto power twice in November to block the renewal of a U.N. investigative panel tasked with identifying those responsible for the deadly gas attacks.
