Putin says Damascus did not use chemical weapons

Russian President Vladimir Putin said Friday that the Syrian government force did not use chemical weapons to kill civilians in April.

"Toxic gas was possibly used by someone else but not President Bashar al-Assad. The incident was used to incriminate him," said Putin during a discussion at a plenary session of the annual St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.

On April 7, the United States launched 59 cruise missiles against a Syrian military airfield in the province of Homs, after the West accused Damascus of gassing civilians in Khan Sheikhoun in the province of Idlib on April 4.

The Syrian government said it has destroyed all chemical weapons and repeatedly denied the accusation.

Russia said the deadly intoxication was possibly caused by the explosion of chemical weapons produced and stored by the rebels in a local depot during a raid by the Syrian Air Force.

Moscow, Tehran and Damascus stick to an "unbiased" on-site investigation into the alleged chemical attack.
