DAMASCUS, Syria - Syria has accused U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry of lying by claiming there is "undeniable" evidence of a large-scale chemical weapons attack in Syria likely carried out by the regime.
A statement on the state-run Syrian Arab News Agency says Kerry's insistence on "jumping over" the work of U.N. experts in Syria shows that the U.S. has deliberate intentions to exploit events.
Kerry said Monday there is "undeniable" evidence of a chemical weapons attack, with intelligence strongly pointing to President Bashar Assad's government as being responsible. President Barack Obama has not decided how to respond to the purported use of deadly gases in the Aug. 21 attack in the Damascus suburbs, which activists say killed hundreds of people.
SANA in the statement Tuesday said Kerry has "fabricated" evidence.
The Syrian government says that the death toll from a triple explosion in a suburb of the capital of Damascus has risen to 45.
