"God forbid anything adventurous will be done in Syria following the Libyan and Iraqi experience", Lavrov added at his press conference, in a dig at the us government.

"God forbid some reckless steps are made in Syria like in Libya or Iraq... But now I hope no one ventures on such an adventure". "But nevertheless, even insignificant incidents will once again spark new migrant flows into Europe", TASS cited the top diplomat as saying.

Russian lawmaker Vladimir Dzhabarov said on Saturday that Russia was likely to call for a meeting of the United Nations Security Council to discuss U.S., British and French air strikes on Syria, RIA news agency reported. "They may be only welcomed by those who are overseas and expect to hide out while continuing efforts to destroy this entire region in order to keep advancing their geopolitical projects here", he added.

Russia's ambassador to the United States warned that there would be consequences for the US-led military strikes, adding that it was not acceptable to insult Russia's President.

Russian Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich says global relations should not depend on the mood of one person when he wakes up in the morning, in apparent reference to US President Donald Trump, RIA news agency reports.

Several NGOs, including the White Helmets, confirmed that chemical weapons were used in the Eastern Ghouta area on April 7.

The White Helmets are not the sole source of information about the Douma attack.

And The Russian Center for the Reconciliation of Opposing Sides in Syria reportedly examined Douma on Monday and found no traces of chemical weapons.

The current escalation of the situation in Syria "has a destructive effect on the whole system of worldwide relations", the Kremlin said.

He said: "Syrian authorities were immediately blamed for the so-called attack, no proof was presented and no questions were asked. Russian Federation will demand a meeting of the U.N. Security Council, I think, for sure", Dzhabarov, who is the deputy head of Russia's foreign affairs committee, was quoted by RIA as saying.

"We can not take such risks".

The head of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, after meeting with German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas, noted that Russia's participation is necessary to resolve the conflict in Syria.
