Apr 14, 2017, 10:53

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has denied allegations that he was responsible for the deadly chemical attack that took place in Khan Sheikhoun last week, calling the claims a "fabrication".

"We don't know if the whole pictures or video that we've been seeing are true, or fabricated", the Syrian president insisted. "In his Wednesday interview with AFP, Assad similarly said his nation would allow only an "impartial" investigation".

AMSTERDAM: Global chemical weapons investigators have gone to Turkey to collect samples as part of an inquiry into an alleged chemical weapons attack in neighboring Syria last week that killed 87 people.

We're not going to use it.

On Wednesday, its ally Russian Federation vetoed a U.N. Security Council resolution to condemn the attack.

Asked if he had ordered the chemical weapons attack, Assad said the Syrian military had no chemical weapons and that it would not use them if it did.

"We cannot give up and we must try, in good faith, the best we can, to have a text condemning the attack, asking for a thorough investigation", French Ambassador Francois Delattre told reporters. "Even if we have them, we wouldn't use them", he said.

The campaign has come at a cost to the predominantly Kurdish forces, which receive ground and air support from the USA military and other allies.

Damascus and allies in Moscow have denied the regime attacked the village with chemical weapons, maintaining that the casualties were caused by gases released after an al-Qaeda-affiliated ammunitions depot was hit by conventional munitions in a legitimate government air raid.

Eighty-nine people were killed and others injured in the April 4 chemical attack in Idlib province.

A suspected April 4 chemical attack in civil war-ravaged Syria killed almost 90 people and is under OPCW investigation.

United Nations (U.S.), April 12 (ANI): UN Secretary-General spokesperson Stephane Dujarric has stated that the fact-finding mission of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) began on the alleged use of chemical weapons in the province of Syria's Idlib.

"We wouldn't have the will, because morally, this is not acceptable".

The chemical attacks in Syria that left more than 80 men, women and children dead have been blamed on Assad. USA administration officials have said evidence clearly shows Assad's forces were behind the attack and that sarin gas was used. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov agreed there were many problems, but stressed that Moscow was "open to dialogue with the USA in all different areas".
