China says should not pre-judge Syria chemical probe

BEIJING - China said on Friday that no side should rush to pre-judge the results of any probe by UN chemical weapons experts in Syria, after Syria's opposition accused government forces of using such weapons in an attack on civilians.
"The UN inspection team has already gone to Syria to start their probe, and (China) hopes and believes they can fully consult with the Syrian government to ensure the smooth progress of the investigation work," China's Foreign Ministry said.
"We believe that before the investigation ascertains what really happened, all sides should avoid prejudging the outcome," it added in a statement on its website.
