October 20, 2017 – Fort Russ News – Paul Antonopoulos

Senior Russian legislator Frantz Klintsevich told reporters on Friday that Washington acknowledges terrorists use chemical weapons in Idlib to exonerate Syrian authorities. 

This is the first time that the US State Department has admitted  that Jabhat al-Nusra  terrorists not only possess chemical weapons, but also use them in the Idlib province.

“Certainly, the mere fact that the United States has finally acknowledged that terrorists in Syria use chemical weapons, something we already said a long time ago, is very important,” said Klintsevich. 

“It is imperative first of all in psychological terms. I think this will clear the current Syrian authorities of any last suspicions,” the first deputy chairman of the Federation Council’s Committee for Defense and Security continued.

“I’m afraid that for the US this step may be just an episode, and this won’t change anything in its policy. I mean first of all the covert and often explicit support for the opposition, which is basically difficult to distinguish from the militants,” he explained.

“For abandoning this support, a serious shift in Washington’s entire Middle East policy would have to occur, but no serious signs of that is being seen now,” Klintsevich stressed.
