China to take serious look at UN report confirming Syria's use of chemical weapons

BEIJING - China's Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday that the government would take a serious look at a report by UN investigators which confirmed the use of sarin nerve agent in an Aug. 21 gas attack outside the Syrian capital.
Ministry spokesman Hong Lei made the comment at a daily news briefing in Biejing.
The long-awaited report does not say who launched the attack, though US, British and French envoys said technical details in it pointed to Syrian government culpability.
