Syrian president Bashar Assad says a UN report that found "clear and convincing evidence" of a sarin nerve gas attack in Syria last month is "unrealistic" and denies his regime orchestrated the attack that killed hundreds.
The interview was conducted in Damascus by former Democratic Congressman Dennis Kucinich, a Fox News contributor, and Fox News Channel Senior Correspondent Greg Palkot.
Assad says his government would abide by an agreement reached with US and Russian officials to give up his chemical weapons.
He says he has received estimates that destroying the stockpiles would cost 1 billion dollars (£0.6 billion) and would take roughly a year.
