Russia opposes a draft UN resolution to extend the mandate of an international inquiry into chemical weapons attacks in Syria, the RIA news agency quoted Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov as saying on Wednesday.

The US draft says Syria must not develop or produce chemical weapons, and it calls on all parties in Syria to provide full cooperation with the international probe.
