Bashar al-Assad warned that he would only allow an "impartial" investigation into chemical attack
Syria's President Bashar al-Assad warned that he would only allow an "impartial" external investigation of last week's suspected chemical attack, in an exclusive interview with AFP in Damascus.
"We can only allow any investigation when it's impartial, when we make sure that unbiased countries will participate in this delegation in order to make sure that they won't use it for politicised purposes," Assad said Wednesday.
Government ally Russia on Wednesday vetoed a draft UN Security Council resolution demanding Syria cooperate with an international investigation of the attack.(This story has not been edited by NDTV staff and is auto-generated from a syndicated feed.)
