"Syria is keen on cooperating with the OPCW to uncover the truth behind the allegations that some western sides have been advertising to justify their aggressive intentions," state news agency SANA said, quoting an official source in the Foreign Ministry.
According to SANA, Syria will provide all the necessary assistance to the OPCW specialists if they go to Douma.
The state news agency has also stated that the foreign ministry had "sent a formal invitation to the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons to send a team from its fact-finding mission to visit Douma and investigate claims linked to the alleged use of chemical weapons there."
The Syrian government has refuted it carried out a poison gas attack in Douma, the last rebel-held town in the Eastern Ghouta suburbs.
In its turn, Moscow has named the news reports about the attack "hoaxes" and warned against military attacks against Syrian areas where Russian troops are deployed.
At the same time, the Russian Defense Ministry have noted that the allegations of chemical weapons' use had been spread by NGOs, including the infamous White Helmets, who have been repeatedly posted faking their reports.
