MOSCOW  - Allegations that forces loyal to Syrian leader Bashar Assad were to blame for a chlorine attack in Syria's eastern Ghouta are a provocation aimed at sabotaging a ceasefire in the enclave, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov was quoted as saying on Monday.

Lavrov said a 30-day ceasefire for eastern Ghouta agreed in the UN Security Council would take effect once all sides had agreed how it should be implemented, RIA news agency reported.
