Russia opposes the United States over the Syria’s chemical weapons sanctions

Syria’s chemical weapons: The Syrian authority, supported by close ally Russia, opposed the United States and other countries on Tuesday over the suspension of the Syrian democratic rights to vote within the global chemical weapons watchdog for failing to present details of three chemical strikes in 2017 that the prosecutors indicted on the Bashar Assad regime.

The meeting in the U.N. Security Council implied a standoff when the 193 member state of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) in The Hague, Netherlands was held in April to think about a French-drafted measure, for 46 nations, to suspend Syria’s privileges and rights. 

The French proposal was a reaction to the Syrian authority’s failure to meet the 90 days deadline in July by the OPCW’s council for Damascus to pronounce the nerve specialist sarin and chlorine, which the OPCW watchdog stated were dismissed by Syrian authority in late March 2017. 

The Western power’s effort shows a lot more extensive exertion in order to obtain responsibility for Syrian chemical assaults and feature claims that the Assad rule is subtly proceeding with its chemical weapons plan. 

In September 2013, Syria entered the Chemical Weapons Convention, pushed by Russia after a lethal chemical weapons assault that the US charged on Damascus. 

However, by Aug 2014, the Assad regime had announced that its chemical weapons were completely destructed. Yet, Syria’s underlying statement of its chemical weapon-making sites has continued to be in conflict. 

It was profoundly upsetting that the OPCW still couldn’t decide if the underlying announcement was precise due to irregularities. The issues are not trivial as some would depict, referring to Russia, Ireland’s UN envoy Geraldine Byrne Nason stated.

Norwegian envoy Mona Juul, also showed concern over Syria’s failure to describe the unnamed chemical that is not used as a weapon. It was identified at the Barzah offices of the Syrian Scientific Studies and Research Center. 

Dmitry Polyansky, Russia’s UN envoy, blamed the OPCW team of experts for being “corrupt” and asserted they utilized falsely accused Syria. 

English envoy Barbara Woodward stated that the OPCW team had concluded Syria utilized chemical weapons in six events. “These are not speculative issues for a great many citizens in Syria who have endured the appalling consequences for the body of nerve and chlorine agents,” she added. 

The US deputy envoy Richard Mills told that neither the Security Council nor the world is tricked by Russia’s hurried mission to undermine the OPCW. 

He urged board members to approach all nations to help the French draft measures against Syria in April pointed toward advancing answerability for the Assad regime’s activities.

Why Syrian Refugees In Germany Might Not Have A Peaceful Life Anymore?

Syrian Refugees In Germany: Syrian refugees are going to have a harrowing time outside of their nation, as their past comes haunting once in a while. Despite having stayed in Germany, under the wings of Chancellor Angela Merkel, Syrian refugees have found themselves caught in various kinds of embarrassing situations. 

Former members of the Syrian security forces are the ones in front of the firing squad. It is now being debated whether they should be persecuted for war crimes or should they serve as key witnesses in an effort to bring senior officials to justice. 

In both cases, there is no peace for the Syrian refugee community that has been trying to learn the German language to be able to get absorbed into the milieu of German way of life. Germany, today is home to as many as 6million Syrian refugees.  Additionally, prosecutors have used universal jurisdiction laws that allow them to prosecute crimes against humanity committed anywhere in the world to seek justice for victims of alleged torture and extrajudicial killings by Assad’s forces.

The former members of the Syrian security forces who were removed or escaped from the Assad regime have found themselves caught in this web. Termed as defectors who were given asylum to Germany are now being questioned of their intents- should they be looked as friends or foes?

 Some of these might have genuinely got away with mass crime and murder. Human rights groups have been following up and indentified some of such protagonists that have later escaped persecution and escaped to Germany, living with family. 

Those who have been witness to crimes might also fear their safety of being pulled into court cases.
