The minister said tests on the victims had confirmed use of the nerve agent.
The report comes as G7 ministers rejected a call by Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson for targeted sanctions on Russian military officers over Moscow's support for the Syrian regime.
Ministers at the G7 meeting wanted more evidence of the attack to be collected before supporting the measure.

Turkey may hold a Brexit-style vote to decide whether the country should continue moving forward with plans to join the EU, president Tayyip Erdogan has said.
He indicated that any such vote could take place after April 16.
Turkey is slowly moving through accession talks to join the bloc, but discussions have lasted over a decade due to tensions over Cyprus, human rights and other issues.
Relations between Ankara have been particularly strained in recent months as Turkey takes much of the brunt of the refugee crisis and Mr Erdogan faces criticism for attempts to shore up his personal powers.
Turkey's threats come amid tensions with neighbouring European nations who have barred campaigning Turkish ministers from holding rallies.Read the full story ›

Denmark's prime minister has asked the Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim to postponed a planned visit to the country due to "tensions" between Ankara and the Netherlands.
Mr Yildirim is reported to have a visit to Denmark planned for Monday, March 20.
However, Danish Prime Minister Lars Loekke Rasmussen has said that such a visit cannot take place in light of "the current Turkish attack on Holland".
"Under normal circumstances, it would be a pleasure to welcome the Turkish Prime Minister", Mr Rasmussen said.
He continued that the Danish Government was "very concerned" about political developments in Turkey.
The diplomatic row between Turkey and the Netherlands began when Rotterdam authorities cancelled a Turkish rally in the city, and then the Dutch Government refused to let the country's foreign minister's plane land.
In response Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has decried the Dutch as "Nazi remnants", while Prime Minister Binali Yildirim has threatened "harsh" retaliation.
It is not known when the visit will be rescheduled for.
Turkey should apologise for comparing the Dutch to Nazis, the Netherlands' Prime Minister has said.
Mark Rutte added that the latest comments by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, in which he accused the Netherlands of acting like a "banana republic" and said it will pay the price for its "shameless" treatment of Turksih ministers, are "unacceptable" and are not helping to de-escalate tensions between the two countries.
Mr Rutte added that if Turkey continues on its current path then the Netherlands would be forced to consider it's response.
The row began on Saturday when a Turkish rally in Rotterdam was cancelled and the country's foreign minister's plane was not allowed to land in the Netherlands.
