Canada to Grant Money for Independent OPCW Investigation in Syria

According to the Canadian Foreign Ministry press-service, the Canadian government is going to grant $1, 9 million to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) to investigate the use of chemical weapons in Syria.
“Today’s announcement reflects Canada’s unwavering support to the Syrian people. The courageous and dedicated work of the OPCW is central to establishing the facts around chemical weapons attacks in Syria and ridding the world of these inhumane weapons”, – said Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland.
The Canadian Foreign Ministry also emphasized that this contribution would help OPCW to investigate chemical weapons incidents and collect evidence in support of accountability and verify that Syria’s chemical weapons program has been completely eliminated.
Let us remind you, that on the eve the OPCW presented a report, confirming the use of sarin or other poisonous substance similar to sarin during a chemical attack in Khan Sheikhoun on April 4. The U.S. blamed the Syrian government in the chemical attack. In its turn, the official Damascus rejected accusations and laid the blame on the militants.
