AfghanistanSyrian militants getting chemical weapons training in Afghanistan: Russia

MOSCOW: Syrian militants are being trained in Afghanistan about how to use chemical weapons by a number of countries, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said citing reports; however, he said the Afghan central government is not controlling the training.

“Some reports indicate that [al-Qaeda-linked ] al-Nusra Front is planning to smuggle toxic compounds and relevant specialists into Iraqi territory to stage terrorist attacks there this time,” Lavrov said.

   

Lavrov said that that the intent of the chemical training is to put the skill to use in new false flag operations in Syria.

The Russian foreign minister also warned against any possible provocations in Syria to disrupt the ongoing chemical weapons disarmament operation.
