The head of the Russian delegation to the talks on Syria in Astana, Alexander Lavrentiev, stated that there is incontrovertible evidence that the events in Khan-Sheikhoun are a provocation.

“You understand perfectly well that Russia has all incontrovertible evidence that this is pure water provocation by individuals and structures that are not interested in achieving peace on Syrian soil. But, unfortunately, all our explanations, arguments, attempts to prove come across the complete misunderstanding on the part of the West”, Lavrentiev said.

Earlier, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that Western countries are trying to “wrap up” an objective investigation of the chemical weapons incident in Syrian Khan-Sheikhoun on April 4.
