Iran had informed US that chemical weapons being transferred to Syria: FM Zarif

Iran had informed US 9 months ago that extremist elements are transferring chemical weapons to Syria.

In an interview with Iranian weekly, Aseman, Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad-Javad Zarif said the country had sent an official memo to the Swiss embassy in Tehran which represents the US interests section in Iran and informed US that ‘Hand-made chemical weapon Sarin is being transferring to Syria.’

“In that memo we warned that extremist groups may use the chemical agents,” Zarif said although the “Americans never replied to the memo.”

Iran’s Foreign Minister believes that the supporters of the extremist groups are trying to misguide US and trigger a new war in the region to secure their interests.
