Syria: Chemical weapons claims are 'barefaced lie'

Accusations from the US, UK and Israel that the Syrian army used chemical weapons are a "barefaced lie," Syria's information minister told Russian television channel RT on Saturday.
Omran zl-Zohbi said statements made by  US Secretary of State John Kerry and members of the British government were "inconsistent with reality."
He added that it was the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad that made an official request to the UN to investigate the incident in Khan al-Assal, which "proves once again that the whole policy of the Syrian government is targeted against use of any kind of weapons of mass destruction by anybody: terrorists, Israel or any other neighboring state."
