Damascus stresses support for chemical probe

Syria has dismissed US chemical attack claims, calling the use of such weapons a crime against humanity.

Speaking at a U-N Security Council session, the acting charge d’affaires of Syria’s permanent delegation at the world body rejected the U-S claims as false and cheap. Munzer Munzer said Damascus supports any action taken by the UN to investigate the use of chemical weapons in Syria.

Munzer noted that Washington uses the chemical issue whenever it realizes that terrorist groups are in trouble in the face any progress by the Syrian army. Moscow has also accused Washington and London of using the issue to sabotage Russia’s efforts to find a political solution to the crisis ravaging the Arab country.
