WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States is confident that a U.N. report will say chemical weapons were used in Syria but it was unlikely to assign blame, the State Department said on Friday.
State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said she was confident the U.N. report, without assigning blame, will "reaffirm that chemical weapons were used in Syria" on August 21.
