IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, Sept 25, IRNA -- Russian Foreign Ministry said that components of chemical weapons were delivered to Idleb province in Syria from several European countries.

"Many things may disclose in Idleb now. Deliveries of components of chemical weapons from European states were carried out there. It all will re-emerge again soon," said the Director of the Department for Arms Non-Proliferation and Control at the Russian Foreign Ministry Vladimir Yermakov on Tuesday, SANA reported.

On supplying Syria with S-300 system, Yermakov said that supplying Damascus with S-300 system will not lead to the escalation in Syria, but to it will lead to stability.

Yermakov affirmed that this system is defensive and that the US "intentionally lies" when it says that supplying Syria with it threatens the security of the US.

He added that S-300 system which Syria will be supplied with will be able to cover the Syrian airspace when it is necessary to do so.

He indicated that the pretexts of those who previously demanded not to supply Syria with these systems have become no longer convincing, and that it is the right of any state to provide the military- technical assistance to its partners.
