Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said his government handed over all its chemical weapons stockpiles in 2013 and could not have been behind last week's suspected sarin attack.
France's Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault said Wednesday that this country would present proof of the Assad regime's culpability in the coming days.
In response to the April 4 attack, the United States fired 59 missiles at a Syrian air base it said was the launching pad for the attack.
Earlier this week, Assad's former chemical weapons research chief told Britain's The Telegraph newspaper that Syria had "at least 2,000 tons" of chemical weapons before the war and only declared 1,300.
Another set of bio-medical samples from seven people being treated in hospitals were also analysed in two other labs.
Syria has moved its aircraft from a base struck by the United States two weeks ago to a separate airbase in the port city of Latakia used by Russia's military, a USA official tells ABC News. The chemical weapons were shipped outside Syria and destroyed overseas, with the most toxic material disposed of at sea aboard a USA ship.
The draft decision, seen by AFP, calls for an investigation by the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) "to establish whether chemical weapons were used in Khan Sheikhun and how they were delivered to the site of the reported incident" - even though an official probe is already underway.
It was the first direct US attack on the Syrian government's facilities.
Global chemical weapons inspectors have found "incontrovertible" evidence that Sarin gas, or a similar substance, was used in a chemical attack in Syria earlier this month that killed 89 people. Israel welcomed the strike on its neighbor.
The U.S. strikes are likely a one-off, sending a "message" that the use of chemical weapons will no longer be tolerated, although the messaging required further clarification and explanation.

The Post, citing a defense official, also said the regime used the chemical weapons out of frustration after failing to make meaningful advances on the ground despite support from Russia, Iran and Hezbollah.
Syria was obligated to give up its chemical weapons arsenal in 2013 under the terms of a deal agreed between the United States and Russian Federation following a deadly chemical weapons attack in Damascus earlier that year.
Images from the attack on Khan Sheikhoun on April 4 showed victims limp, with pinpoint eyes and frothing mouths, as emergency responders rushed to strip clothes from bodies and hose away chemical substances.
"One ton of sarin could easily be used to perpetrate an attack on the scale of the 2013 attack".
