Syria air strikes: Russian Federation denies tampering with suspected chemical attack site

Mr Macron maintained that he "never said" either the United States or France would stay engaged long-term in Syria in a military sense - hours after saying in a live Sunday interview that he had managed to change Mr Trump's mind on withdrawing troops.

By contrast, eight countries voted against the Russian draft - the U.S., U.K., France, Netherlands, Sweden, Kuwait, Poland and Ivory Coast. Four countries abstained - Ethiopia, Kazakhstan, Equatorial Guinea and Peru.

Russian Federation may have visited the site of an alleged poison gas attack in the Syrian town of Douma and "tampered with" evidence, the USA ambassador to the global chemical arms watchdog said Monday.

The U.S., France and the United Kingdom launched military strikes Friday night on what the Pentagon said were three Syrian chlorine and sarin gas research facilities, in response to a suspected chemical attack by Syrian President Bashar Assad.

Haley said the measures would target companies that supplied Damascus with equipment and other material related to chemical weapons, which killed more than 40 people in Douma on April 7 and prompted US-led air strikes.

"When our president draws a red line, our president enforces the red line", Haley stressed.

The Syrian regime and Russian Federation deny chemical weapons were used in the final offensive that captured Douma, a rebel-held territory east of Damascus.

France's U.N. Ambassador Francois Delattre said the result of the vote sends "a clear message" that Security Council members recognized the need for the airstrikes, and "their proportional and targeted nature".

The Prime Minister will tell MPs that the strikes were in the national interest because the use of chemical weapons can not be normalised, including in the UK.

He said the UK, Nato and European Union had closed the normal channels of communication with Russian Federation which provided safeguards against confrontation.

"We're letting Russian Federation know this is not something that we want to be a part of", Haley said on "Fox News Sunday". "With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years". "It is crucial that the dialogue with the allies of Syria be resumed".

"It is our understanding the Russians may have visited the attack site", United States ambassador Ken Ward told emergency talks of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) in The Hague. "The United States is always there and will continue to be there", she said.

Russia's Nebenzia called it "a very sad day for the world, for the United Nations, for its Charter which was blatantly, blatantly violated, and for the Security Council which has shirked its responsibilities".

Kenneth Ward, US envoy to the OPCW, said: "It is our understanding the Russians may have visited the attack site".

Worldwide inspectors are trying to reach the site in Douma, near Damascus. "But it was the world saying that we've had enough of the use of chemical weapons". "There must also be access to humanitarian aid and political consultation".

"Once again, we demand an immediate stop to aggression and refrain from the illegal use of force in the future", he said.

Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of the Lebanese Hezbollah movement, which fights alongside the Syrian army, said the US military had kept its strikes limited because it knew a wider attack would bring retaliation from Damascus and its allies and inflame the region.
