Zarif slams West’s dual standards regarding chemical attacks


Tehran (ISNA) – Iranian Foreign Minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif in a tweet condemned West’s dual standards regarding the chemical attack in Aleppo.

“Where is the West in condemning the chemical attack in Aleppo by terrorists? West"s pattern: chemical weapons only condemned if alleged to be used by an enemy; not an ally. A blind eye turned when Saddam used them against Iran, but war waged to destroy them when he was an enemy,” Zarif tweeted.

More than 100 people, including children, were affected after foreign-backed militant groups launched a chemical attack against al-Khalidiya neighborhood in the government-held Aleppo late on Saturday.
