TEHRAN, November 11 - Iran said that accusing Syria of involvement in chemical attack in Syrian Khan Shaykhun is unfounded.

Iran says accusing Syria in Khan Shaykhun incident ‘baseless’TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - Accusing Syrian government of involving in chemical attack in Khan Shaykhun without any sampling of Shayrat Airbase is unfounded and baseless, said Deputy Head of Iran's mission in the Hague for Legal and International Affairs Reza Pourmand Tehrani addressing the 56th meeting of the OPCW's executive council.

"The fact-finding committee has failed to embrace success in doing investigations within the framework of its responsibilities and based on the chemical weapons convention and its measures have been unprofessional, balanced and independent and therefore, the mechanism report also lacks credibility,"

Tehrani reminded that Syria has accepted the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) despite the hard conditions it faces and its fight against the terrorists groups.

Earlier this month, the Permanent Mission of Russia to the United Nations announced that report on the April chemical attack in the Syrian town of Khan Sheikhoun looks more like an amateur document and is based mostly on assumptions and the selective use of facts.
