Russia and China again submitted to the UN Security Council a draft resolution on combating chemical weapons in Iraq and Syria. Countries have already made such a resolution in 2016, but then it did not receive support.

This is reported by the BBC, with reference to the Deputy Permanent Representative of Russia to the United Nations, Vladimir Safronkov.

He said that the document was made public on Friday, March 24 at a closed meeting, convened at the initiative of Moscow.

Safronkov noted that during the consultations, Russia focused on the problem of the use of chemical weapons by militants in Mosul.

He clarified that Russia submitted to the Security Council the same draft resolution, which was introduced a year ago. Then the document did not receive the support of the countries.

Earlier Russia blocked the UN Security Council resolution on sanctions for the use of chemical weapons in Syria. The resolution allows for the imposition of sanctions on persons of companies that are related to chemical weapons attacks.
