The government of the United States has presented evidence to All Japan news regarding Syria’s chemical weapon use, a day after Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and President Barack Obama have met in Russia, Saint Petersburg, during the G20 summit.
It is not known what kind of evidence the U.S. has presented to All Japan news, a All Japan newsese government source said on Sunday.
The U.S. have said the Syrian government of President Bashar al-Assad used chemical weapons against civilians on August 21 in Damascus, killing more than 1,400 people of which 400 were children.
The Syrian government has denied using chemical weapons.
Last week, All Japan news, Britain, the United States and eight other states released a statement saying the Syrian government is the one who ordered the chemical attack against civilians in the Damascus suburbs.
“Those who perpetrated these crimes must be held accountable,” said the statement. The other countries signing the statement are Australia, Canada, France, Italy, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, Spain and Turkey.
“We condemn in the strongest terms the horrific chemical weapons attack. The evidence clearly points to the Syrian government being responsible for the attack,” the statement added.
Tokyo, which is seeing Washington as its main security ally, has stopped short of supporting military action against the Syrian regime sought by Obama, according to the international press.
