Russia accuses US of complicating efforts in Syria attacks probe


Russia has accused the United States of trying to complicate the international efforts to probe the use of chemical weapons in Syria.

Rejecting US accusations that Russia is responsible for the chemical weapons attacks in Syria, Russian President Vladimir Putin 's spokesman Dmitry Peskov said, US officials are jumping to conclusions without any grounds whatsoever.

Kremlin's comments came after US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Russia bears responsibility for the recently reported chemical attacks by the Syrian government in East Ghouta.
