The Syrian foreign ministry says Damascus is committed to its obligations under the Chemical Weapons Convention it joined in 2013 following a suspected chemical attack in Idlib.
The Foreign Ministry denied allegations that the Syrian army had carried out any such attack against civilians. Back in 20-14, Syria handed in the last batch of its chemical weapons to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons for destruction. The Russian defense ministry has also reacted by saying its planes have not conducted any airstrikes in the town of Khan Sheikhun in Idlib. The comments were made after the so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights blamed the attack on Syrian forces and their Russian allies. The EU Foreign Policy Chief and the UN Syria envoy have also commented on the attack at a joint press conference.
