Updated : June 28, 2018 01:27 PM IST
India has voted against the draft decision on addressing the threat from chemical weapons use at a special conference of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), citing "incomplete consultations".
Speaking at the conference, India's Ambassador and Permanent Representative to the OPCW, Venu Rajamony, said the country is against the use of chemical weapons under any circumstances and believes those who indulge in such "abhorrent acts" must be held accountable.
"As our concerns have not been addressed by the draft decision, India has decided to vote against the draft decision," Rajamony said.
