BEIRUT - Syria will only use its chemical weapons if it faces "external aggression", but will never use them against its civilians, the country's foreign ministry spokesman said on Monday.

"Syria will never use (chemical weapons) against Syrians no matter what," Jihad Makdissi told a news conference that was aired on state television.

He said that the weapons were guarded by the Syrian army, adding that the security situation in Damascus was improving.
