MOSCOW, December 24 (Itar-Tass) — Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Monday that he did not believe Syria would use chemical weapons.
“I don’t believe Syria would use chemical weapons,” the foreign minister told Russia Today television. “It would be a political suicide for the government if it does,” he said in reply to the query.
He pledged that Moscow double-checks and triple-checks any information about that. “We go directly to the government and all the time we get very firm assurances that this is not going to be used under any circumstances,” he added.
Lavrov said the main danger in this situation “is the probability that the rebels might take hold of chemical weapons”.
