As the UN geared up its chemical weapons inspections team in Damascus’s Four Seasons hotel, Syria’s foreign minister hit out at those who accuse his government of gassing its own people.
“The most dangerous thing is that the United States, Britain and
France encourage these terrorists to use chemical weapons. These countries defend them and this has to stop. This means that these terrorists will soon use chemical weapons against Americans and Europeans,” said Faisal al-Maqdad.
The foreign minister added that he had proof that the rebels had used chemical weapons, and that it would be sent to the UN in New York.
