SOFIA, September 3 (Itar-Tass) - There is no proof the use of chemical weapons at Damascus’ suburbs was authorised by the Syrian authorities, Bulgarian Defense Minister Angel Naydenov said.
“There is no proof Syrian President Bashar al-Assad issued an order to use chemical weapons. According to the French secret services, the chemical attack was made from an area, which was being controlled by al-Assad,” Naydenov said.
“It is necessary to wait for the final conclusions by U.N. experts. They will determine if sarin gas was used against the Syrian people,” the Bulgarian minister added.
He noted that the possible strikes on Syria “will prevent the escalation of the conflict and curb plans on using chemical weapons”.
