Syrian government accuses France of staging chemical weapons attack




The Syrian Foreign Ministry has denounced the remarks made by France’s top diplomat, Jean-Marc Ayrault, regarding the alleged use of sarin gas in the Idlib province by the government forces.

The ministry mentioned in a statement released by the SANA news agency on Thursday that “fabricated allegations launched by French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault” were part of the “campaign of lies” against Damascus.

According to the Syrian Foreign Ministry, these allegations display“without any doubt the involvement of France in preparing this crime in the framework of its full partnership in the aggression on Syria.”

Moreover, the Syrian president Assad calls the chemical attack a “100% fabrication”, accusing them of not allowing independent investigations from reaching the scene.
