Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is disputing U.S. allegations that he used chemical weapons against civilians, and said the Obama administration hasn’t proved he did, according to CBS News correspondent Charlie Rose.

“He denied that he had anything to do with the attack, he denied that he knew, in fact, that there was a chemical attack,” Rose said, describing on CBS’s “Face the Nation” his interview with Assad today in Damascus. “He said there’s not evidence yet to make a conclusive judgment.”

Rose interviewed Assad as the U.S. weighs a military strike against Syria as punishment for what the U.S says was an Assad-ordered Aug. 21 chemical weapons attack that killed more than 1,400 people. CBS said in a statement that excerpts from the interview will be broadcast tomorrow on its morning and evening news programs. The full interview will air on Rose’s Public Broadcasting System broadcast tomorrow night.

“He was calm,” Rose, whose PBS program is rebroadcast by Bloomberg Television, said of Assad. “He knew the situation he was in.”
