Russian Federation says poison Western-made

Following the USA -led strikes, however, "we consider it possible to return to examination of this issue not only in regard to Syria but to other countries as well", Rudskoi said.

What is less clear is whether sarin - the agent used in the chemical attack last April that prompted United States missile strikes - or a similar agent was also used.

French President Emmanuel Macron also said he had "proof" that the Syrian government had attacked Douma with chemical weapons.

Later, a White House briefing on a call between Trump and May said that they "continued their discussion of the need for a joint response to Syria's use of chemical weapons".

On Wednesday, the US President said the missiles were "coming", but on Thursday he tweeted that he had "never said when".

Trump said the goal of the campaign was to "establish a strong deterrent against the production, spread and use of chemical weapons".

Douma and the sprawling eastern Ghouta region near the capital, Damascus, had been under rebel control since 2012 and was a thorn in the side of President Bashar Assad's government, threatening his seat of power with missiles and potential advances for years.

Russian Federation said that the Western powers "cynically" carried out military action hours before a team from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons was set to begin an investigation into the suspected chemical weapons attack in the town of Douma in Eastern Ghouta that sparked the intervention by the USA and its allies.

A fact-finding mission from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons is expected to head to Douma, the site of the suspected attack.

According to Interfax news agency, Russia's defence ministry also said that Syria intercepted the USA and allied attacks using Soviet-produced hardware, including the Buk missile system.

Only Syrian air defense systems had responded to the strikes, US officials confirmed.

The United States will want to maintain a dialogue with Russia about strategic stability following Western missile strikes on Syria, Russian news agencies cited a Russian Foreign Ministry official as saying on Sunday.

Russian Federation has countered that the US-led action was aimed at overthrowing Assad and keeping Moscow's influence in check.

The Russian measure would have condemned the "aggression" against Syria and demanded that the three allies refrain from any further strike.

Russian Federation accused Washington of putting worldwide peace at risk and requested a United Nations meeting in NY later in the day but it was not confirmed that it will happen.
