US needs a chemical agenda as an excuse to overthrow Assad

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY) –┬áThe US is using a chemical agenda only to overthrow Syrian President Bashar Assad, said in an interview with NTV’s Itogi Week program, Russia’s permanent representative to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), Alexander Shulgin.

“The focus is on overthrowing Assad and his government, nothing else is of interest to them.” The chemical agenda is only an excuse, everything they offer here in The Hague has only one goal: to drive the Syrian government into a corner and get regime change, and at the same time attack Russia,” said Shulgin.
