OPCW chief Fernando Arias was asked a series of direct questions at the United Nations in regard to the alleged cover-up of the Syria chemical weapons investigation.
Arias “somehow” managed to evade answering a single question that was asked.
The meeting took place on December 11th, 2020.
While refusing to answer any questions, the OPCW chief in turn shifted the blame, criticizing Syria for failing to declare a chemical weapons production facility and respond to 18 other issues.
Arias said, seven years after Syria joined the Chemical Weapons Convention in 2013, its initial chemical declaration has unresolved “gaps, inconsistencies, and discrepancies” and “still cannot be considered accurate and complete.”
He simply entirely blamed Syria, but didn’t say anything in regard to the questions posed regarding the OPCW’s inconsistencies.
It can also specifically be seen in Fernando Arias’ statements that he was entirely disenfranchised in answering any questions, at all: he had a document that was drawn up and he was simply reading from it, without having even memorized what he was supposed to say, then refused to elaborate on anything further.
He was simply reading the script.LIAR, LIAR, CHEMICALS ON FIRE: OPCW CHIEF DODGES SYRIA PROBE QUESTIONS, REFUSES TO ANSWER THEM IN PUBLIC HEARING
