CIA Director Mike Pompeo said that the United States possesses evidence that the Syrian Army was involved in the use of chemical weapons in the Syrian province of Idlib earlier this year.

According to Pompeo, following the chemical incident on April 4 in Khan Sheihoun, President Donald Trump demanded that the truth about what happened be found out. Pompeo said that after Trump’s demand the US intelligence community began to work on the issue and held contacts with US partners.

“I told him [Trump] that the intelligence community had concluded that the chemical weapon had indeed been used in the attack and it had been launched by the Syrian regime… I knew that the intelligence community had solid evidence… I said to Mr. President that we have high confidence that this really took place,” Pompeo said Tuesday at a dinner hosted by the Intelligence National Security Alliance.

In an interview with Radio Sputnik, Oleg Glazunov, a military analyst and associate professor of the Sociology and Political Science Department at the Russian Plekhanov Economic University, expressed doubts over Pompeo’s statement.

“They don’t have evidence. This is a double standards policy again. Just remember the situation with Iraq – chemical weapons and the white substance in a jar. Later, it was found out that all of that was falsified. Now, there is a falsification again,” Glazunov said.
