Russian Federation at the U.N. Security Council vetoed a USA - and Britain-backed sanction against Syria, which would've required the Assad government hand over evidence and the identities of air force officials who launched the strike.

FRENCH FOREIGN MINISTER JEAN-MARC AYRAULT, on claims by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad that "fake videos" and "propaganda" were being used against his government.

They had said it was "very clear" sarin or a sarin-like substance was used.

He suggested that photographs showing children who had died in the attack, which provoked revulsion around the world, were staged. What's the material? You have no information at all, nothing at all.

The anonymous source stressed to CNN that the U.S. did not have prior warning of the attack, but had found the communications during a review of all intelligence captured in the hours just before and after the April 4 incident which killed more than 80 people. "We don't have an arsenal, we're not going to use it". It has conducted an air campaign in Syria since September 2015, saving Assad's government from imminent collapse and helping to reverse the Syrian military's fortunes.

Assad later blasted the United States and its allies: "The United States and the West - they're not serious in fighting the terrorists".

Assad says regime firepower 'not affected' by United States strike
Ambassador Matthew Rycroft of being far more interested in regime change in Syria than in seeking to bring peace to the country. But Tillerson repeated the administration's new belief that "the reign of the Assad family is coming to an end".

Assad continued that regarding "that chemical attack, we don't know whether those dead - the children...were they dead at all?"

"We can only allow any investigation when it's impartial, when we make sure that unbiased countries will participate in this delegation in order to make sure that they won't use it for politicized purposes", he said.

Russian Federation vetoed a United Nations Security Council resolution on Wednesday that demanded that the Syrian government cooperate with an inquiry into the suspected sarin gas attack that killed dozens of people.

"We are deeply anxious by our partners in the U.N. Security Council trying to evade an honest investigation into that episode", he said.

However, Vladimir Safronkov, Russia's deputy ambassador to the United Nations, said he was "amazed at this conclusion".

"Apart from anything else, we believe it's only the regime that has the capability to make such an attack".

Assad went further to say that evidence of the attack on Khan Sheikhoun - in the opposition-controlled Idlib province - might've been made up altogether.
