BEIJING - China's biggest arms maker said on Friday it had never exported any chlorine gas or cylinders to Syria after reports that chlorine gas cylinders used in a suspected toxic gas attack bore the arms giant's name, "Norinco".

China North Industries Group Corporation, or Norinco, said the logo printed on the canister was not the same as its standard engraving. It also said it reserved the right to take legal action against anyone who issued false reports about its activities.

"Norinco is greatly concerned about the incident of chlorine gas attack in Syria as well as its aftermath and has since looked into all our past contracts and historical files," a statement said. "Norinco would hereby solemnly declare, based on our investigations, that we never exported any chlorine gas or its cylinders to Syria."
