Russia warns US against targeting Syria chemical arsenal
Russia on Friday warned the United States against targeting Syria's chemical arsenal as Washington considered the use of force against President Bashar al-Assad's regime.


"With particular concern we perceive the fact that military infrastructure facilities securing the integrity and safety of Syria's chemical arsenal are among the possible targets for military strikes," the Russian foreign ministry said in a statement. "In this respect we warn US authorities and their allies against striking any chemical facilities and adjacent territories," the statement said. (AFP)
