TEHRAN – Iranian Ambassador to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) Alireza Jahangiri on Thursday applauded a U.S. senator’s remarks that Britain’s MI6 intelligence is planning a fake chemical weapons attack on Syria’s Idlib and then blame the Damascus government for it.

“U.S. senator: Britain's #MI6 is planning a #fake chemical weapons attack on #Syria. This proves what has been said many times in the #OPCW’s meetings. If the world takes such statements seriously, we will not see any disasters like the Iraq war,” Jahangiri tweeted.
