Russian Federation warns of war over Syria strikes

Russian Federation warns of war over Syria strikes

The Russian leader warned against "ill-considered and risky actions ... that would have consequences beyond conjecture".

The U.N. chief told an emergency meeting of the U.N. Security Council Friday called by Russian Federation that the highly volatile situation risks "escalation, fragmentation and division as far as the eye can see with profound regional and global ramifications".

According to a statement by the French presidency, Macron called for dialogue between France and Russian Federation to "continue and intensify" to bring peace and stability to Syria.

Russian officials are suggesting that an apparent chemical weapons attack in Syria was a "fabrication" staged by an unnamed foreign intelligence agency.

Late Friday night, the U.S. President Donald Trump announced that the U.S., United Kingdom and France jointly launched strikes targeting the Assad regime's chemical weapons capabilities after a suspected chemical attack killed dozens outside of Damascus.

In his primetime address announcing the strikes, Trump accused Russian President Vladimir Putin and his government of failing to guarantee a 2013 deal that was supposed to rid Assad of his chemical weapons.

US Ambassdor to the UN Nikki Haley said on Friday that the US had enough "proof" to act on Syria, but that the president was taking measures to avoid unwanted repercussions.

State TV channels compared what they described as U.S. President Donald Trump's reckless action with the responsible, statesmanlike stance taken by Putin. "No final decision has been made", White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said, adding that Trump would confer with French President Emmanuel Macron and British Prime Minister Theresa May. "I assure you that militarily Russian Federation is much stronger than the USA and all its satellites, but we are also much more responsible", Azimov said.

Since Saturday, when images of ashen toddlers struggling for breath emerged after the alleged attack, there has been a sustained military buildup in the eastern Mediterranean.

The strike is suspected to be a chemical attack, but the Syrian government denied the allegations saying it was fabricated by the rebels who were in a state of decline.

Yildirim on Friday again condemned the "heinous" the attack in Douma and said the perpetrators should "pay a price".

Meanwhile, the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons said its experts in Syria will start investigations on Saturday. The government, however, said evacuations from Douma were ongoing and no Syrian government forces had entered the town.

Lavrov spoke to reporters in Moscow on Friday.

The offensive, which included weapons launches from multiple air and naval platforms, was a direct response to accusations of a chemical weapon attack on civilians last week by Assad's Russian-backed regime.

"Russia in the most serious way condemns the attack on Syria, where Russian military servicemen help the legitimate government to fight terrorism", Putin said.
