BERLIN, October 5 (Itar-Tass) - The Syrian government army did not use chemical weapons, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said.
In an interview with Spiegel daily on Saturday, al-Assad said, “We did not use chemical weapons. It is a lie.”
“You’re crediting me with an image of killer of my own people, but it’s wrong,” the Syrian president said.
Al-Assad said he was ready to closely cooperate with international experts for chemical weapons.
The Syrian government can “give all data to specialists”, he added.
