Iran: If chemical weapons were used, terrorist groups are to blame
Aug 22, 2013
Tehran, (SANA)- Iranian Foreign Minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, said that the Syrian Government cannot be responsible for a possible chemical attack on Damascus Countryside.
"If the use of the chemical weapons is true, surely the armed terrorist groups are the one which used them as it was proved that they do not hesitate to commit any crime," Zarif added.
Meanwhile, Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs, Hussein Amir Abdullahian expressed astonishment over the talk about the Syrian army's use of chemical weapons in Damascus Countryside as it coincides with the start of the work of the UN investigation mission on the use of the chemical weapons in Syria.
In a statement to al-Mayadeen TV Channel, Abdullahyan said that the international community should prevent the use of the chemical weapons by the terrorists against the Syrian people after they used them in Khan al-Assal near Aleppo.
