PARIS - Any use of chemical weapons by Syrian government forces would be unacceptable, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said on Tuesday.

Syrian Foreign Ministry spokesman Jihad Makdissi, acknowledging for the first time that his country had chemical and biological weapons, said on Monday the Syrian army would not use chemical weapons to crush rebels but could use them against forces from outside the country.

"Any use of chemical arms is completely unacceptable. President Obama made statements to this effect and so have others... These weapons are under strict surveillance by the international community," Fabius told France 2 television.
