Amir Saeid Iravani, Iran’s permanent ambassador to the United Nations, made the remarks before a UN Security Council briefing on Syria on Thursday.
"We fully support constructive dialog between Syria and the OPCW (the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons)," he said.
"We believe that to ensure a successful outcome, any investigation into chemical weapons incidents must be conducted with utmost impartiality, professionalism, credibility, and objectivity...," the envoy stated.
"We reiterate our stance that the integrity and credibility of the OPCW hinge on its ability to maintain neutrality and objectivity, guided solely by scientific and technical considerations," Iravani noted.
The efforts, the envoy hoped, would help "address any remaining issues and bring the file to a final and conclusive closure."
The Arab country surrendered its entire chemical stockpile in 2013 to a mission led by the UN and the OPCW.
Western governments have, however, repeatedly accused Damascus of carrying out alleged chemical operations during the foreign-backed war in the country, and have brought it under attack on several occasions using the allegations.
