Mikdad: Syria submitted proof of chemical weapons use by terrorists

Aug 29, 2013


Damascus, (SANA) – Deputy Foreign and Expatriates Minister, Fayssal Mikdad, stressed that the US and its allies had no proof of chemical weapons use by the Syrian government and they were encouraging the terrorists to use these weapons.

In a statement to reporters, Mikdad said that this western policy means that such weapons will be used soon by the same terrorist groups they have supported against the European peoples.

He clarified that Syria submitted to the UN investigation mission proof on the use of chemical weapons by the armed terrorist groups in all sites.

In an interview to BBC channel, Mikdad said, "We do not trust the western countries which support terrorists in Syria, and Jabhat al-Nusra on top; we have the right to defend ourselves, dignity and lands by using all means available and our people is ready for that."

He pointed out that any military attack on Syria will have regional and international repercussions and direct effects on the role of the UN Security Council.

Mikdad asserted that Syria did not use any chemical weapons and it has repeatedly affirmed that if Syria possessed any chemical weapons, it would not use it against its people.
