He said Israel's concerns are Iran and Syria.

Mueller says access across conflict lines also "remains extremely constricted".

"We will ask our French partners what specifically they have in mind, because so far they have said at all levels that the US-led coalition in Syria pursues exclusively the elimination of the threat of terrorism coming from the Islamic State (outlawed in Russia) and other organizations the UN Security Council has identified as terrorist".

Humam Husari describes it as a "desperate and cheap attempt by Russian TV to deny the obvious attack on Douma". The three countries struck suspected Syrian chemical weapons facilities in joint airstrikes a week later.

Samples taken from two different sites will be returned to the OPCW's laboratory in the Netherlands and analyzed to determine whether or not banned toxic weapons were used.

The delay of the inspections raised questions about whether there would still be enough evidence left for the investigators to gather.

They claim that the attack killed over 40 people, many of them suffocating in an underground shelter where they were hiding from government airstrikes.

It is highly unlikely Assad used chemical weapons, because using chemical weapons only guarantees military intervention by the United States.

United Nations humanitarian chief Mark Lowcock says he expects donors to pledge 4.4 billion dollars in humanitarian aid for Syria and neighbors sheltering its refugees for 2018.

Days of Mass Protests in Armenia
Almost 200 people were detained, including Pashinyan who was "forcibly taken", The Guardian reported. For years, he had promised not to run for either president or prime minister after his second term.

The OPCW said it had urged the Russian delegation to allow its experts to interview the witnesses first, and to hold the briefing "once the FFM has completed its work".

The OPCW, which has sent a team of inspectors to Syria to investigate the alleged attack, had no immediate comment.

The Syrian Archive, which works with human rights groups such as Amnesty International, said it has verified 861 videos covering some 212 attacks — a lot of them believed to have been carried out by government forces.

Six days after the suspected attack, Russia's Defense Ministry accused Britain of direct involvement in staging video images of alleged victims.

Earlier, the Kremlin refused to comment on the media reports about the possible start of supply of the Syrian air defense.

Russian Federation is planning to deliver new air defense weapons to Syria in the near future, General Sergei Rudskoy stated on Wednesday, April 25, as quoted by RIA.

Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman warned on April 24 that if Syria uses Russian-made air defense missiles against Israel, it will strike back.

Russian Federation said the attacks removed all hurdles for providing Syria with the much better S-300.
