OPCW to send two expert teams to Syria later this week — Russia’s UN envoy

The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) will send two expert teams to Syria later this week, Russia’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations Vasily Nebenzya said on Tuesday after neither of the two draft resolutions on the presumable chemical attack in Syria’s Douma was passed.

„As far as we know, two OPCW expert teams are to be sent to Syria at the end of the current week,“ he said.
