US claims of Syrian chemical attack complicate negotiations

VIENNA, Jun. 28 (MNA) – Russian Deputy Foreign Minister said that US claims of new chemical attacks allegedly planned by the Syrian government complicates negotiations.

The White House warning this week of new chemical attacks allegedly planned by the Syrian government is unsubstantiated and a complication of reconciliation processes, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov told Sputnik on Wednesday.

He said it would be unacceptable "if the goal is to aggravate tensions."

Russia warns the United States not to act unilaterally in Syria, Deputy Foreign Minister Gennadiy Gatilov told Sputnik, underscoring that its troops are not threatened by the Syrian government forces.

"We have always spoken about this, including with regard to their latest attacks on the Syrian armed forces," Gatilov said when asked whether Moscow warns Washington against unilateral steps in Syria.

He stressed that "there is no threat to US specialists from the Syrian armed forces, therefore these actions are provocative in nature."

The press service of the White House claimed that Syrian President Bashar Assad is allegedly preparing a new chemical attack, and promised that if it is implemented, the Syrian authorities will "pay a heavy price."
