Syria to Give UN Access to Chemical Attack Site

Syria on Saturday told Iran that it plans to give UN inspectors access to the site of the recent alleged chemical attack near Damascus.

Syria is preparing for the opportunity for UN inspectors to visit the places that have been chemically attacked by terrorist groups, Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem told his Iranian counterpart Mohammed Javad Zarif in a phone conversation, according to Iran’s official IRNA news agency.

Also on Saturday, the rebel group Syrian National Coalition (SNC) called on Western and Arab countries to intervene to stop the bloodshed in Syria.

“We ask U.S. President Barack Obama and leaders of other western countries and Arab world to be responsible at personal level and intervene to stop the massacre in Syria,” said SNC president Ahmad al-Jarba in Istanbul, Turkey.

The White House said that Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron on Friday talked over the phone about security challenges in Syria.

The two leaders were determined to continue to consult closely on the reported use of chemical weapons by Syrian forces against civilians near Damascus, as well as future responses by the international community to the use of chemical weapons.

Syrian Information Minister Omran al-Zoubi said in an interview with the pan-Arab al-Mayadeen TV that Washington’s pressure would not be useful and would be a “waste of time and we will not weaver in combating terrorism.”

“Striking Syria would not be a picnic under any circumstances,” the minister said, noting his country is totally cooperating with UN inspectors with “transparency.”
