Syria says it will facilitate chemical probe

Syria's UN ambassador says it will facilitate a visit by international chemical weapons inspectors at "any point they want" in the town where a suspected gas attack occurred last weekend.


Speaking in New York on Thursday, Bashar Ja'afari said an inspection team from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons is on its way to Damascus and that visas are being provided.


Ja'afari said any delay or "disruption of their visit" would be as a result of "political pressure" from Western countries, which Syria says have politicized the issue.


Ja'afari denied his government has used chemical weapons and said "terrorists" have access to such weapons.
