looking for loopholes to unilateral action against syria and don't care enough about peaceful efforts to resolve the syrian conflict that's the impression sergey lavrov says he's gotten after several weeks of diplomatic work to avoid possible strikes against the war torn state. reports. two weeks ago it seemed like the united states are ready to essentially strike syria then it looks like things are going to ease up just a bit and now again russia seems to be facing some sort of alamo city especially head of the un general assembly which is to take place in new york next week so the russian foreign minister in an interview to russia's channel one has used its own the points that he's made before but in a very different or rather harsh manner especially when talking about the way that the west is approaching the syrian crisis. and i remember compartments are starting to. see if russia does not agree to egypt the seven resolution in the u.n.
7:02 pm
to see stop working with the chemical watchdog in the hague is completely counter to what we agreed on was john kerry namely the chemical watchdogs decision and then are supporting their solution from the u.n. a c. but without a chapter seven. all russian foreign minister said that the team of u.n. experts who were in syria last month investigating reports of alleged chemical attacks actually couldn't complete their job in its entirety caving into the pressure from the likes of the united states who seem to be determined to push their agenda in only one direction. which all parties are blinded by an ideological goal to remove the assad regime they want to show the big can call the shots in the middle east. they are mostly concerned with proving their own supremacy and not the task that we are driven by which to solve the syrian chemical weapons problem. on top of that russian foreign minister has said that there is a high chance that the syrian rebels themselves could produce chemical weapons and homegrown laboratories has also said that those who have essentially created the
7:03 pm
syrian army are continuing to cover its tracks all not hold our mr lavrov has said that it does not seem like the western powers are interested in pursuing the diplomatic solution off the matter right now. well some partners are trying to forcefully push forward it was syrian resolution. because they understand that if chapter seven was mentioned as a chance for them to get approval of the un security council unilateral action which took them to keep calm and stop coming up with there's a lot but the convention for the prohibition of chemical weapons on the back burner and that ties us girls according to the russian foreign minister of france and the united states and they didn't really need the report from the u.n. inspection team their minds were set up long before that and they have only used that report as yet another attempt to insist that in fact it was just the syrian government that was using chemical weapons in syria even though there is absolutely
7:04 pm
no such indication in the u.n. report as my colleague mr now we now reports. as chaos and violence continue in syria so does the diplomatic battle surrounding the conflict this week a u.n. investigation concluded chemical weapons were used on august the twenty first the environmental chemical medical therapy that the u.n. investigators collected provide clear and compelling evidence that the surface to surface rockets used in this attack contained the nerve agent sarin we know. possesses. and there is not a shred of evidence however that the opposition does. this isn't complicated when we said we know what is true we meant it but the u.n. report doesn't blame the acid regime for the attack or mention other chemical
7:05 pm
weapons attacks allegedly carried out this summer russia claims there is still no evidence the syrian government is guilty and rather many suggestions the attack was a clever attempt by rebels to push for foreign intervention we have every reason to think that it was a provocation to the small provocation of course but the technique was very simple they use an old soviet missile which are no longer in service with the syrian army the key thing is that the missile carries the label made in the u.s.s.r. russia says the u.n. report was rushed and ignores relevant evidence of other chemical attacks in syria the deputy foreign minister called in damascus this week confirmed un inspectors were informed of this material which was killed by syria and the story was he's handed over to office else drum the head of u.n. mission here mission of experts which came and investigated the incident but never
7:06 pm
did so on the three subsequent incidents and then sell strong was asked to look into the and eventually factor this new evidence into the final report of self from his mission you can never happened in fact still the u.s. is pushing for a response based on this u.n. investigation just last week the u.s. and russia agreed to a six point plan to rid syria of its chemical weapons the mask is pledged to move forward and has so far complied the chemical weapons ploy if you like by the west and by the by the jihadist was. was countered effectively. rusher in damascus saying ok you want to chemical weapons you've got the chemical weapons it's interesting to note is that the free syrian army disavowed that agreement and will not return and in the middle of the other forces will not give up their chemical
7:07 pm
weapons in this whole dispute and and john kerry the u.s. state is not even pushing on that instead he is pushing on the u.n. security council to sign a strong resolution possibly even mandating force but recently seems like a small victory for diplomacy in the syria crisis a new road is slowly going back to old ways as washington continues to threaten force and moscow push for compromise the battle continues and he's now a r.t. washington. leader of the al qaeda wing in syria and iraq baghdad is reportedly been killed it's claimed he died in northwestern syria this is a battle between rebel forces and extremists who once fought side by side near the assad push have become more frequent in the area with the rise of radicals the violence turning increasingly sectarian christians coming under fire artie's more if an ocean of course in the aftermath of a brutal jihadi attack on the ancient village of maluco further to the syrian
