Sponsors of the Syrian opposition want to disrupt Geneva-2 - Alexei Pushkov.

Alexei Pushkov, the head of the International Committee of the State Duma believes that it is more in the interests of the foreign sponsors rather than the Syrian opposition to disrupt the international conference on Syria

"19 groups of the Syrian opposition that are not capable of operating without external support, "rejected" the carrying out of Geneva-2. That means that their sponsors are interested in disruption," quoted Pushkov's message in Twitter Interfax.

The fact that nineteen Syrian rebel groups rejected the offer to participate in an international meeting on Syria the Geneva-2 came from Ahmad Issa al-Sheikh’s statement, who is the head of the Islamist group "Sakyur al-Sham."

WASHINGTON
 - The White House said on Thursday that Syria had likely used chemical weapons against rebel forces on a "small scale," but emphasized US spy agencies were still not 100 percent sure.
US intelligence services had been investigating reports that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's forces had used chemical arms -- a move Washington has said would cross a "red line," triggering possible military action.
US Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel first announced the assessment during a visit to Abu Dhabi, saying the "decision to reach this conclusion was made within the past 24 hours."

Syria’s chemical arsenal has become a central point of international concern since the country’s civil conflict flared up in March 2011. Syria is reportedly in possession of nerve agents including mustard gas, while NATO chief Anders Fogh Rasmussen has already accused the country’s government of deploying the Scud missiles needed to deliver it.
