WASHINGTON, August 30 (Itar-Tass) - The U.S. surveillance service believes with a high degree of confidence that the Syrian army used a nervous chemical gas in a Damascus outskirt last week. Now, the Syrian authorities should bear responsibility for their actions. Those were the keynotes of a statement on Syria made by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Friday.
The U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Friday accused Russia of obstructionism in relation to the situation in Syria at the United Nations.
He emphasized that Russia’s obstructionist behavior was preventing the United Nations from passing a Washington-desired decision on Syria. However, he warned that the absence of such a decision would not stop the United States from going ahead with its plans.
Kerry set forth his arguments in a statement on the recent chemical attack in a Damascus outskirt.
