PARIS - France's foreign minister said on Monday it was confident that a deal could be reached with Russia on a UN resolution over Syria's chemical weapons program.

Laurent Fabius told RTL radio that the UN inspectors report regarding an August 21 chemical attack that was published on Monday showed there was "no doubt" the Syrian government was behind it.

The UN report confirmed that surface-to-surface missiles carrying the deadly nerve agent sarin had been used, 21, but as expected did not specify who carried out the attack.

"When we look precisely at the data, the quantities of toxic gases used, the complexities of the mixes, the nature and the trajectory of the launchers that leaves no doubt on the origin of the attack," Fabius said, adding that it was damning for the Syrian government.
