Russia's deputy foreign minister said the delay was due to USA airstrikes.
She added that Russian Federation is feeling the effects of U.S. actions including "the sanctions that are continuing to happen, which you'll see again on Monday". In its agreed conclusions, the ministers said the European Union "stands united in its support for the total prohibition and elimination of chemical weapons worldwide".

The agency said survivors blamed the attack on the Army of Islam, the powerful rebel group that controlled the town before it was taken over by Syrian government forces this week.
The proposed sanctions follow USA -led airstrikes against Syria's chemical weapons capability and President Trump's promise that Assad and his allies, namely Moscow, would pay a "big price" for enabling the use of chemical weapons.
