The Arab foreign ministers have held the Syrian government responsible for all the chemical attacks on the suburbs of Damascus, while calling for referring the perpetrators to international trials, Xinhua reported.

In the Arab League (AL) resolution, the foreign ministers strongly condemned and denounced the "heinous crime" committed by using the chemical weapons banned internationally against unarmed civilians, in defiance of the international norms.
