US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has reiterated Washington’s position on the issue of chemical weapons in Syria.

“Chemical weapons with chlorine are still being used there [in Syria],” the US secretary of state said, calling it a violation of the all documents signed by Russia. “Russia bears responsibility for resolving this issue,” Tillerson stated at a briefing following a meeting with Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Moravetski.

The attendees of the event accused Damascus of being responsible for chemical attacks in Syria and Russia of trying to cover up the alleged crimes of Syrian government troops.
