Orient Net, 28 February 2018 -- A senior US disarmament official said on Wednesday that Russia has violated its commitments as guarantor of the destruction of Syria’s chemical weapons stockpile and preventing the Assad regime from using them.




Robert Wood, the US disarmament ambassador to the Conference on Disarmament, told reporters in Geneva shortly before Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov addressed the forum: “Russia is on the wrong side of history with regard to chemical weapons use in Syria.”

Wood, asked about a reported nexus of cooperation between North Korea and Assad regime, replied: “Clearly there has been a history of a relationship between North Korea and Syria with regard to missile activity, chemical weapons components.”
