Russia stressed that the United States has «killed» UN's Joint Investigative Mechanism (JIM) that probed the alleged use of chemical weapons in Syria.

«The US mission to UN deliberately omits that they came last to kill our UNSC resolution to extend and reincarnate JIM to make it independent, objective and professional», Vasily Nebenzia, Russia's United Nations envoy, said.

Earlier, Russia submitted a draft resolution to establish a new and impartial international body to investigate the use of the chemical weapons in Syria which was rejected by Washington.
