French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault dismissed as lies and propaganda on Friday Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's comments that a poison gas attack blamed on his government last week in Idlib province was "100 percent fabrication".

Ayrault made the comment during a joint media briefing in Beijing with China's Foreign Minister Wang Yi.
