star this property answer text <p>Ministers receive regular and frequent advice on Syria, including the use of chemical weapons by the Asad regime. The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) published on 1 March 2019 the Fact-Finding Mission (FFM) report into the chemical weapons attacks in Douma. The FFM conducted a full briefing of States Parties on 5 March. The Director General of the OPCW offered all States Parties the opportunity to submit further questions in writing; and to have technical discussions with the FFM. At the Executive Council on 14 March, the Russian delegation proposed without prior notice a vote on an FFM briefing to State Parties. The UK voted against holding a vote on this issue, as did a clear majority of Executive Council members. The Director General OPCW has confirmed that all evidence and views were taken into consideration in preparing the FFM report; and that the Technical Secretariat stands by the findings. These are: that there are reasonable grounds to believe that a toxic chemical, likely molecular chlorine, was used as a weapon in Douma on 7 April 2018. This is a clear breach of the Chemical Weapons Convention. The UK has confidence in the FFM's investigation and the conclusions of its report.</p>

No fatalities have been reported. We call on all parties to support the experts of the Organisation for the Prevention of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) as they look into these allegations. As a result of UK-led action, the OPCW is putting in place attribution arrangements to identify the perpetrators of the use of chemical weapons in Syria. If the OPCW was to determine that a chemical weapon was used in this instance, it would be able to examine who was responsible. We condemn the use of chemical weapons in all circumstances and will continue to work with partners, including through the UN and OPCW, to ensure that the international norm against the use of chemical weapons is upheld.</p> more like this
