The Syrian government has asked the UN to send experts to investigate the alleged chemical attack in Idlib province, but the request remains unanswered due to pressure from US and other Western countries, Syrian president Bashar Assad told Sputnik in an exclusive interview.
“We formally sent a letter to the United Nations, we asked them in that letter to send a delegation in order to investigate what happened in Khan Shaykhun,” Assad said. “Of course till this moment they didn't send (the experts), because the West and the US blocked any delegation from coming,” he added.
Bashar Assad believes that Washington is hampering the probe because if the experts arrive in Idlib, “they will find that all their (the US) narratives about what happened in Khan Shaykhun and then the attack on Shayrat airport was a false flag, was a lie.”
Meanwhile, at the G7 Summit the west is trying to get support against Assad while trying to halt and prevent an investigation. The same was done back in 2013 and the independent international investigator concluded that the so-called rebels were responsible for the chemical attack in Damascus.
I say, let's have the investigation.
The question is, to investigate what? Whether poison gas was used ir not? Or whether those who died were from natural causes?
