U.S. fabricating lies to justify military strike: Syria

Washington, Sept. 5 : Syria has denied launching a chemical weapon attack on suburbs in and around Damascus and accused the United States of lying to justify a possible military strike.

President Bashar-al-Assad's adviser Dr. Bouthaina Shaaban criticised Washington for using its military prowess to suppress a democratically-run nation.

Sky News quoted her, as saying that the U.S. claim of targetting weapons of mass destruction in Syria is exactly similar to the policy followed in Iraq.

The statement came after President Barack Obama said the world's failure to respond to the use of chemical weapons would risk further attacks.

The U.S. Congress will decide whether to authorise military action, after a draft resolution that will limit initial attacks to 60 days and no use of ground force, will clear its first congressional hurdle, the report added.

Syria's Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Muqdad said the regime would not change its position even if it resulted in a third world war.
