Iran’s ambassador to The Hague, Alireza Jahangiri, welcomed Virginia state senator Richard Black’s recent remarks that Britain’s intelligence service plans to launch a chemical attack in Syria and blame it on Damascus, saying Tehran has often warned against such eventuality.  “US senator: Britain’s #MI6 is planning a #fake chemical weapons attack on #Syria. This proves what has been said many times in  #OPCW’s meetings,” Jahangiri said on his Twitter account on Thursday. “If the world takes such statements seriously, we will not see any disasters like the Iraq war,” he added in his tweet. Black said Britain’s MI6 spy service was planning a chemical weapons attack on the Syrian people, which it would then blame on President Bashar al-Assad. “Around four weeks ago, we knew that British intelligence was working towards a chemical attack in order to blame the Syrian government, to hold Syria responsible,” the Independent quoted Black as saying. Earlier this week, the Russian military said footage, meant to serve as proof that the Syrian government has conducted a chemical weapons attack in Idlib, Syria, had been sent to global news outlets. On September 3, Russia also said the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) must not overlook reports about a provocation with the use of chemical weapons that is being prepared in Syria’s Idlib.
