The Russian Foreign Ministry has reminded US that all chemical weapons have been taken out of Syria in mid-2014 with Washington's assistance.

Russia considers US Vice President Mike Pence's statements claiming that Moscow and Damascus allegedly did not fulfill obligations to destroy Syrian nuclear arsenal to be groundless, the ministry said.

Pence has no grounds to say that the 2013 deal on the Syrian chemical weapons' destruction failed.

Moscow said that it is premature to accuse the Syrian government of using chemical weapons in Idlib, adding that Russia insists on conducting a full-fledged probe into the issue.
