Russia: West has no proof Assad launched gas attack, it just wants to fight him...

Russia warned Western powers on Monday against any military intervention in Syria, saying the use of force without a United Nations mandate would violate international law.

Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told a press conference that while the use of chemical weapons in Syria must be investigated, Western powers were jumping to accuse President Bashar Assad's regime without proof and out of personal dislike for the Syrian leader.

"[The] West is unable to present evidence of the involvement of the Syrian authorities in chemical attacks, but states that 'red line' in situation has been passed", said Lavrov, according to the Voice of Russia.

"You can't fight regime only because you don't personally like the dictator leading it and not fight some regimes where you like the dictator," Lavrov added.

Lavrov also said that Moscow had no plans to be drawn into a military conflict over the civil war in Syria and that Washington and its allies would be repeating "past mistakes" if they intervened in Syria. Full story...
