President of Syria Bashaar al-Assad said there is ‘no chemical weaponry’ in his country; AFP quoted him as saying on Thursday, April 13.   

"Definitely, 100 percent for us, it's fabrication," he said in the interview on Wednesday in reference to the recent chemical weapons attack.

The Syrian leader whom the Western governments hold responsible for chemical attacks in Idlib governorate, Syria, said his army refused the entire arsenal of chemical weapons back in 2013 – and even if there was any, the military would have never used it.

"Our impression is that the West, mainly the United States, is hand-in-glove with the terrorists. They fabricated the whole story in order to have a pretext for the attack," Assad said.

He added he’s going to initiate a ‘non-biased investigation’ into the gas attack that occurred in Khan Sheykhun, Idlib province on April 4. The attack that, according to numerous media reports, employed deadly gas sarin, claimed lives of about 70 people and injured hundreds more.
