Interfax: Assad says chemical handover not result of US threat

Published: 09.12.13, 15:50 / Israel News

Syria's decision to cede control of its chemical weapons was the result of a Russian proposal, not the threat of US military intervention, Interfax news agency quoted President Bashar Assad as saying in a Russian television interview.

 

"Syria is placing its chemical weapons under international control because of Russia. The US threats did not influence the decision," Interfax quoted Assad as telling Russia's state-run Rossiya-24 channel in the interview. (Reuters)
