Syria's Assad claims USA 'fabricated' chemical attack, despite consensus
Assad, who has been the president of Syria since 2000, told the AFP in a video interview that there was no order to make any attack.
The United States and its allies say the Syrian military carried out the Idlib attack, something Syria has already denied.
"You have many indications if you don't have proof, because no one has concrete evidence", he said.
"It's not clear whether it happened or not", Assad said.
"Assad's statements do not square with a USA intelligence report released on Tuesday that expressed "[confidence] that the Syrian regime conducted a chemical weapons attack using the nerve agent sarin".
"The agglomerate media and the supremacist policy of the US just want the killing and destroying conflict in Syria to continue, and this primarily to kill whatever attempt to resolve the bloody crisis", said Younan, who has served as the bishop of the New Jersey-based Diocese of Our Lady of Deliverance for Syriac Catholics in the United States and Canada for 14 years.
Oil Demand Growth Seen Slowing for a Second Year
The combination of factors could keep a lid on oil prices, which have risen in the past six months after a three-year slump. Still, the IEA said, global oil supply and demand appear to be rebalancing after more than two years of oversupply.
"On April 4, the lifeless bodies of innocent victims, grotesquely contorted and twisted by the nerve agent sarin, tell the real story", Ward said.
Assad insisted his forces had turned over all their chemical weapons stocks years ago and would never use the banned arms.
The OPCW has blamed Assad's government for at least two attacks in 2014 and 2015 involving the use of chlorine.
Western leaders including US President Donald Trump have accused Assad of being behind last week's attack in the rebel-held town of Khan Sheikhun, saying his forces unleashed a chemical weapon during an air strike. "You have a lot of fake videos now, and you have the proof that those videos were fake".
The videos of children suffocating on sarin gas in Idlib were fake, President Assad of Syria said yesterday.

But if we failed to acknowledge it before, it's worth mentioning it now: be prepared for the unexpected. The heavy wrist shot came and Lundqvist kicked it aside with a lightning-quick reaction.
"We have always been and continue to be deeply concerned by the horrific suffering that has been visited on the people of Syria throughout this war".
Russia, a long-time ally of Assad, said that the attack on the Syrian base was "reckless" and called for an urgent U.N. Security Council meeting.
"We can only allow any investigation when it's impartial, when we make sure that unbiased countries will participate in this delegation to make sure that they won't use it for politicised purposes", he said.
The OPCW's Fact Finding Mission for Syria is conducting an investigation and is expected to report its findings in three weeks. "They fabricated the whole story in order to have a pretext for the attack", he said.
The US had, until its Shayrat attack, limited its involvement in Syria to removing the so-called Islamic State (IS) from its stronghold in the city of Raqqa.
The comment is telling because when Mr Trump came to power many thought US-Russia relations would improve from the low point reached during the Obama administration, which saw Russian diplomats expelled during the end of his presidency for alleged election hacking.
