More strikes in Syria will lead to global 'chaos': Putin warns Trump

Syrians wave the national flag and portraits of President Bashar al Assad in Damascus on Saturday

On Monday, the White House walked back her statement and said that it has not yet made a decision on sanctions on Russian Federation.

The International Relations Department says that the alleged action by Syria can not be justification for military airstrikes by the US, Britain and France.

Supporters of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad have poured into the streets in the capital Damascus in support of their government after the United States and its allies fired more than 100 missiles at Syria. The Western countries blame Assad for the Douma attack that killed dozens of people.

Russian Federation has denied allegations of election meddling and has denied accusations of other cyber-attacks on power grids in the past.

When asked whether Russian Federation was prepared to work with the proposals of Western countries at the UN, Ryabkov told TASS news agency: "Now the political situation is extremely tense, the atmosphere is extremely electrified, so I will not make any predictions".

Did the USA, the United Kingdom and France actually fire 100 missiles at three chemical weapons sites in Syria on Friday night?

Almost three days after the United States, France, and the United Kingdom joined forces to attack alleged chemical weapons facilities in Syria, little is known about the impact of the attack.

Macron, speaking on French television BFM and online site Mediapart, said "we are preparing a political solution" aiming at allowing a political solution for Syria.

The White House pushed back against Macron's comments about Trump's intentions for U.S. forces.

When the Trump administration announced sanctions in March related to Russian meddling in the 2016 United States election, it also disclosed what it described as a Russian attempt to penetrate the U.S. energy grid. "We convinced him to remain".

"We are still conducting a more detailed damage assessment, but initial indications are that we accomplished our military objectives without material interference".

Negotiations on the proposals are due to start on Monday, a day after a delegation from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons were due to arrive in Douma. Moscow condemned the Western states for refusing to wait for the OPCW's findings before attacking. His comments at the closed-door meeting were obtained by Reuters.

From Moscow, President Vladimir Putin denounced the operation as "an act of aggression" but officials also noted that no Russian military assets had been threatened.

There's been widespread condemnation of the incident including from US President Donald Trump. "Chemical weapons have been prohibited for decades and we must enforce this prohibition".

Mr. Trump, who only weeks ago said he wants to pull US troops out of Syria - there are roughly 2,000 there now - said Friday night the strike does not mean the USA does not seek an "indefinite" presence in Syria.

According to reports from the Pentagon, the joint forces hit the Barzah Research and Development Center outside Damascus with 76 missiles, destroying the facility.

If President Assad was behind a chemical attack, Wauquiez said, he should answer to the International Criminal Court.

Britain and its allies have since the strikes renewed diplomatic efforts at the United Nations, circulating a joint draft resolution at the Security Council calling for an investigation into chemical weapons attacks in Syria. The mechanism would look at cases where the OPCW fact-finding mission has established chemical weapons were used or likely used. "He has highly appreciated Russian weapons, which showed supremacy over the arms of the aggressors", Russian State Duma lawmaker Sergei Zheleznyak said according to RT.
