UNITED NATIONS, August 26 (Itar-Tass) - Upon deciding to investigate a supposed chemical attack in Damascus suburb of Guta, the UN Secretariat did not refuse to study similar incidents, including the one at Khan-al-Asal, Aleppo's suburb, Jerome Bernard, UN press service spokesman, told Itar-Tass on Sunday.
"At a time when a new incident at Guta has been added to the mandate (of the inspection mission) and (probe into it) is now a top priority, this does not mean that other incidents will not be investigated," Bernard emphasized.
Reports had appeared in a number of media earlier that the UN inspectors would not investigate the supposed chemical attack made on March 19 against Aleppo's suburb of Khan-al-Asal. It was precisely following that incident that UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, at a request of Damascus, formed an investigation group headed by Swedish scientist Ake Sellstrom.
