Bouthaina Shaaban: Situation Around Khan Sheikhoun is Fabricated

The political and media adviser to the President of Syria Bouthaina Shaaban in interview with Lebanese TV Channel Al-Mayadeen stated that the U.S. missile attack on Al-Shayrat air base pursued political agenda, but failed. Shaaban stressed that the strike was carried after a number of Syrian army successful steps throughout the front line.
Moreover, she said that the situation around Khan Sheikhoun was fabricated as the Organization of the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) confirmed that the Syrian government completely liquidated chemical weapons in 2014.
In addition Shaaban stated that the official Damascus called the representatives of OPCW and the U.S. to set up a commission to investigate the use of chemical weapons independently. Noting that the only requirement of the Syrian side is the access to the materials for all the parties.
Finally Bouthaina Shaaban said that the fight against terrorism is the prior target for the Syrian government, pointing out that Syria is ready to continue confronting any internal and external threats.
