Envoy to UN: Syria Cannot Use Chemical Weapons Because It Has None

"Syria cannot possibly be using chemical weapons because it very simply has none in its possession," Aala told the United Nations-sponsored Conference on Disarmament in Geneva, Middle East News reported.

The envoy's speech follows the accusations of US State Department Spokeswoman Heather Nauert against Damascus, claiming that the Syrian government had used chemical weapons near Idlib's city of Saraqib. Accoding to Nauert, Washington believes that Russia was shielding the Syrian authorities from accountability for its alleged continued use of chemical weapons.

Earlier this month, the UN-mandated Independent International Commission of Inquiry on the Syrian Arab Republic launched an investigation into reports of the alleged use of chlorine in the Syrian provinces of Idlib and Eastern Ghouta.
