(RT) Russia has slammed Washington’s threats against the Syrian government following a recent White House statement alleging that President Bashar Al-Assad’s forces are preparing to use chemical weapons.

“I am not aware of any information or threat of using chemical weapons,” Russian President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov told journalists on Tuesday.

Earlier, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer issued a statement claiming the US “has identified potential preparations for another chemical weapons attack by the Assad regime that would likely result in the mass murder of civilians.”

“We heard about this statement. We don’t know what it’s based on. And, of course, we strongly disagree with the wording ‘another attack,’ because, as you know, despite all the demands of the Russian side, there was no independent international investigation of the previous tragedy with the use of chemical weapons. We do not believe it is possible to rest the responsibility on the Syrian armed forces,” Peskov said.

The Kremlin spokesman also warned of potential provocations by terrorists.

“You know that cases of the use of toxic chemical agents by militants of Islamic state [IS, formerly ISIS/SIL] and other criminal groups have been established on multiple occasions. There certainly is the potential danger of such provocations recurring,” Peskov stated.

Any threats against the Syrian government are “unacceptable,” according to Peskov, who reiterated the call for an investigation into the attack in Idlib.

“Without carrying out an investigation it is impossible, illegitimate and absolutely wrong, in regards to achieving the final goals on Syrian reconcilement, to put the blame on Assad. Of course, we consider unacceptable any such threats to the legitimate government of the Syrian Arab Republic,” the spokesman said, adding that Moscow considers any use of toxic chemical agents inappropriate.

Syria has denied White House allegations of preparing to use chemical weapons, saying they “foreshadowed a ‘diplomatic battle’” in the UN, according to AP, citing the minister for national reconciliation, Ali Haidar.

The US are inviting all terrorists to use chemical weapons and frame the SAA.

p.s. The Us are desperate to find a pretext to cripple the SAA.

And also desperate to try forcin Qatari gas on the EU while tryin to deprive us from both the Russian and African ones.
It’s all about the money and now EU is slipping out of US grip, they’re even more eager to find leverages and also to screw Russian economy as they shit in their pants from seeing Russia entering the EU more than if there was the black plague, the cholera and Ebola at once…
And methods used are absolutely digusting

We/EU should have had “continental” geostrategic outlook since long ago. But too often the smaller states fear France and especially Germany’s economic and political influence. Especially when Brits and other outsiders with a maritime outlook cry wolf and pull the Fascist card in a blame game. Even You.

Just like the foolish and lying Israelies pretexts of last weekend to justify bombing Syrian government positions and supporting the damned terrorists.
Now it will be the turn of their American master making such false and stupid excuses that no one with any common sense would never believe them.
For at that time what benefits and military advantages would the Syrian government take by killing innocent civilians with chemical attacks?
The only beneficiaries of always are the same damn terrorists to the services of the damn government of the United States of America, manufacturer and sponsor par excellence of international terrorism.

It’s all about the money! Anything else is bullshit. Look at a map of Golan, what you point makes no sense. Bunch of SAA dudes smoked pot to celebrate Eid and found it cool to shell into Israel, KHA did typical retaliation according to their usual ROEs, BTW, the Shilka that shot incendiary shells puttin up some fire was blown. Roaches being in a 1.5-2km corridor took profit to rush on positions hit. LMAO, if KHA was giving air support to AQ here, SAA wouldn’t have lost 2 vehicles. 200-300 is more likely! It’s strange that nobody seems to figure… Read more »
