"OPCW experts are currently on site to determine the truth. The Syrian authorities and representatives of the Russian military police are supporting them in every way. All conditions for them to work normally were created. First of all, from the point of view of ensuring their safety," Gatilov told reporters.
The Permanent Representative to the UN Office in Geneva also said that the possible transfer of the talks on Syria under the UN aegis from Geneva to Vienna is not under consideration at present.
Austrian Foreign Minister Karin Kneissl earlier proposed Vienna as an alternative host for the Syrian peace talks, which are being held in Geneva under the aegis of the United Nations.
According to Kneissl, Austria could also assume the role of a mediator in the Syrian conflict settlement, if it receives the appropriate mandate.
