Kremlin says US ‘refusing to face reality’ on alleged Syria attack

Moscow (AFP) – The Kremlin on Tuesday accused Washington of refusing to face up to reality over an alleged chemical attack on a rebel-held town in Syria, for which Moscow insists there is no evidence.

“You see the unconstructive position that some countries including the US have taken. They are a priori refusing to face reality,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told journalists, adding that “none of them is talking about the need for an unbiased investigation”.
