Russia urges US to apply its own law on chemical weapons in relation to ourselves, as Washington does not eliminate their chemical arsenals, said the official representative of Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova.

«Russia has long been destroyed previously existing military-chemical Arsenal. It was duly checked and confirmed by the representatives of the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons,» Zakharova said at the briefing.

U.S. obligations for its destruction is still not fulfilled and constantly putting off the completion of this process, she said.

«I’m sure that those who made the statement about the need to punish Russia for failure to comply with U.S. law on the control of chemical and biological weapons, just don’t know it. So Americans its law should apply to ourselves. It is absurd that it is stated in the address of Russia, so not afraid of sanctions, and the level of those people that create them and deal with their promotion,» — said the representative of the Russian foreign Ministry.
