MOSCOW, August 28 (Itar-Tass) - Moscow has turned down U.S. claims that the Syrian government is to blame for the use of chemical weapons in Syria.

“Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry have discussed a sharp aggravation of the situation in Syria by telephone at the U.S. side’s request,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said.

“Kerry set forth his assessments based, as he claimed, on information provided by trustworthy sources who put the blame for the possible use of chemical weapons on the Syrian government,” the Ministry went on to say.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov presented the Russian side’s arguments. He called for a meaningful and profound exchange of expert information on cases of chemical weapons use in Syria.
