President Assad Says Chemical Attack 100 Percent Fabrication

Russia's U.N. Ambassador Vladimir Safronkov told the council before the vote that during talks earlier Wednesday in Moscow Russia asked for an independent worldwide investigation to examine the April 4 attack on Khan Sheikhoun that killed almost 90 people.

"Canada urges Russian Federation and Iran, as supporters of the Assad regime, to join with the worldwide community in condemning this heinous and illegal use of chemical weapons", Freeland said.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said a suspected chemical weapons attack was a "fabrication" to justify a USA military strike, as Moscow digs in to defend its ally despite increasing strains with Washington.

But Russia, an ally of Syria, blocked a draft UN Security Council resolution which would require President Assad to provide information about air operations and grant inspectors immediate access to air bases.

Bolivia, a nonpermanent member, voted against it, as did China - a permanent member on the 15-member body usually allied with Russian Federation.

Syrian Arab Republic Ambassador to the United Nations Bashar Jaafari arrives at a the Security Council meeting on the situation in Syria at the United Nations Headquarters in NY, U.S., April 12, 2017. The worldwide investigation is required in this case...

In a phone call, Erdogan stressed to his Russian counterpart that the use of chemical weapons was a crime against humanity, they said. "By its failure, Russian Federation will continue to be isolated".

Assad said the American missile strike was "the first proof that it's not about the President of the United States - it's about the regime and the Deep State, or the deep regime in the United States". "The days of your arrogance and disregard of humanity are over", she said. "I think it's very bad for mankind".

Last week's US strike on a Syrian air base dominated talks, with both sides still not seeing eye-to-eye.

Makki further criticized Britain and France for supporting the anti-Damascus allegations over the suspected chemical attack, arguing that the backing comes at the same as neither a British nor a French expert has paid a visit to the town of Khan Shaykhun.

Russian Federation and the USA on Wednesday agreed to keep on fighting worldwide terrorism and continue discussions on Syrian conflict settlement, despite turbulent bilateral relations and a string of pending disputes between the two countries.

Russia's United Nations deputy envoy Vladimir Safronkov rejected the Western draft resolution, saying it "appointed the guilty party prior to an independent and objective investigation".

Despite initial hopes in Moscow of better ties with the U.S. under Trump, the two powers have descended into a furious war of words over the incident and a retaliatory USA missile strike against the forces of the Kremlin's ally Bashar al-Assad last week.

Matthew Rycroft, the U.K.'s ambassador to the United Nations, said during the morning meeting that samples from Khan Shaykhun studied by scientists in Britain tested positive for sarin or sarin-like substances. Yet, Russia still holds all of the important cards in Syria.

Russia's hopes for a thaw in Russia-US ties following Mr Trump's election have been shattered by the congressional investigation into alleged ties between Trump campaign associates and Russia. "I am amazed this was the conclusion. How do you know that?" he asked.

I support President Trump's military response to Assad's latest use of chemical weapons.

Safronkov also said the US airstrike on the al-Shayrat air base last week violated worldwide norms.

He recently completed a fifth round of intra-Syrian talks in Geneva, the first time the two sides have spoken directly instead of through him. "Talking about the Russians, this is another issue", he said. He warned that the talks were overshadowed by an intensification of fighting on the ground and urged the restoration of a nationwide cease-fire.

However, independent bodies are already investigating.

And Assad said he could "only allow any investigation when it's impartial, when we make sure that unbiased countries will participate in this delegation in order to make sure that they won't use it for politicised purposes". "This means that they do not want success in the peace process". "The stakes in Syria are very high".
