"Russia: US claims of Syria chemical arms use unconvincing

MOSCOW- Information the United States provided Russia over suspected use of chemical weapons by Syrian President Bashar Assad’s forces “does not look convincing,” President Vladimir Putin’s senior foreign policy adviser said on Friday.

Yuri Ushakov said expanded US military support for Assad’s opponents would undermine joint efforts to organize a peace conference, but added that Moscow was “not yet” considering sending Assad S-300 anti-aircraft missile systems in response.

France says UN decision on Syria no-fly zone ‘unlikely’

PARIS – France said on Friday that establishing a no-fly zone in Syria was unlikely for now because of opposition from some members of the United Nations Security Council.

“The problem with this type of measure is that it can only be put in place with approval from the international community,” French foreign ministry spokesman Philippe Lalliot told journalists.

“A decision from the United Nations Security Council is needed, and not just any decision,” he said. A Chapter 7 resolution authorizing military action was needed and that was unlikely to be passed, he said.

Britain holds off arming Syrian rebels despite US decision

LONDON – Britain is still not ready to arm the Syrian opposition despite a decision by US President Barack Obama to do so, but is not ruling out the introduction of a no-fly zone or any other measure, a spokesman for Prime Minister David Cameron said on Friday.

“Nothing is off the table,” the spokesman said when asked whether Britain would back a no-fly zone, adding that “no decision has been taken” on arming the opposition. “We are in urgent discussions with our international partners.”

Russia: Data on chemical arms use by Assad fabricated

MOSCOW – A senior pro-Kremlin Russian lawmaker said on Friday that information on the use of chemical weapons by Syrian President Bashar Assad’s forces was fabricated and suggested the United States would use it to justify intervention in the conflict.

A US official said on Thursday that President Barack Obama has authorized sending US weapons to Syrian rebels for the first time, after the White House said it has proof the Syrian government had used chemical weapons against opposition forces.

“Information about the use by Assad of chemical weapons has been fabricated in the same place as the lies about (Saddam) Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction,” Alexei Pushkov, head of the foreign policy committee in the lower chamber of the Russian parliament, said on Twitter. “Obama is taking the same path as George Bush.”

Germany won’t supply weapons to Syrian rebels – Foreign Ministry

“Berlin will not itself supply Syrian rebels with weapons, Foreign Ministry spokesman Andreas Peschke said Friday. However, Germany “takes into account” the US’s decision to do so and Washington’s statement that chemical weapons had been used by the Syrian government forces, he added. Germany supports efforts to hold an international conference on the Syria conflict and will insist that this issue be discussed by the UN Security Council, the spokesman said.”
