He says the U.S.is "even more concerned" about the possible use of the nerve agent sarin.
USA officials have said the Syrian government may be also developing new types of chemical weapons.
Declining to specify how serious a chemical attack would have to be to draw a fresh U.S. military response the United States official said,"We reserve the right to use military force to prevent or deter the use of chemical weapons".
The officials also say Syria may be making new kinds of weapons, either to improve their military capability or to escape global accountability.
He was of the opinion that if global community does not act quickly to tighten the screws on Mr Assad, Syria's chemical weapons could spread beyond its borders and possibly even "to USA shores".
French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said, "Those who carry out chemical weapons attacks need to be made aware that we know who they are, and we will go after them". France says affiliated companies based in multiple countries have been furnishing materials for the manufacture of chemical weapons, including sarin gas.
