Paris: Syrian President Bashar al-Assad`s comments that last week`s chemical weapons attack was a fabrication to justify a US military strike are "100 percent lies", French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault said on Friday.

"It`s 100 percent lies and propaganda," Ayrault said in Beijing, responding to an exclusive AFP interview with Assad late Thursday. "It`s 100 percent cruelty and cynicism."
