U.N. chemical weapons investigators are to return to Syria tomorrow to continue investigating allegations of chemical weapons use there, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said.

"We are pleased that our persistent calls for the return of U.N. experts to Syria for the investigation of other episodes have born fruit," Ryabkov said in parliament, referring to alleged incidents of chemical weapons use other than an Aug. 21 attack.

"According to the latest information, the group ... is leaving for Damascus tomorrow, Sept. 25," he said.
