HS: Russia still suspects rebels of Syrian gas attacks

Leading Finnish daily Helsingin Sanomat writes today that according to Russia, the US cannot yet threaten Syria with military intervention even if the Assad government does not conform to the recent agreement on the decommissioning of chemical weapons.

HS quotes Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov and his French counterpart Laurent Fabius, who took part in a press conference in Moscow yesterday. There, the former said there were serious reasons for believing that there was a provocation, and the latter said that France had no doubts at all that the Assad régime was behind the chemical attacks.
