Russian Federation warns United States of America on Syria as Trump appears to confirm airstrikes

She said Trump was to confer with French President Emmanuel Macron and British Prime Minister Theresa May later in the day on the action to be taken against the Assad regime.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders says Mr. Trump held a meeting Thursday afternoon with his team to discuss the situation.

Trump has since tempered those remarks and the White House said no final decisions on possible actions had been taken.

In an interview Thursday, Assad said the weekend's alleged chemical attack was entirely fabricated by the United States and other Western allies to justify a US airstrike on Syria.

May's office announced on Thursday her Cabinet agreed to "take action" in response to the attack, though the exact response remains unclear.

The problem is that it's likely Russian Federation and Syria know what kind of smart bombs America has - and can now plan for their imminent use.

"I don't want to telegraph what I am doing or what I am thinking", Mr. Trump said.

Despite Trump responding with gusto to Russia's warning, he appeared on Thursday to be drawing his cards closer to his chest with the tweet about the timing of a potential attack.

On Sunday, the day after the attack, the United States president said Russian President Vladimir Putin bore responsibility for the "atrocity" in rebel-held Douma, because of his support for the Syrian government.

A Downing Street spokesman said: "Cabinet agreed that the Assad regime has a track record of the use of chemical weapons and it is highly likely that the regime is responsible for Saturday's attack".

US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis says he believes there was a chemical attack in Syria and that the United States is looking for the evidence.

"We have proof that last week ... chemical weapons were used, at least chlorine was, and they were used by the Assad regime", he said. We will see what happens.

"Any possible action will only cause more instability in the region and threaten worldwide security and peace", Syrian state TV quoted Assad as saying at a meeting Thursday with a high-level Iranian delegation in Damascus. He cautioned that even if inspectors confirmed chemical weapons were used in Douma, "we will not know who did it".

Russian lawmakers have warned the United States that Moscow would view an airstrike on Syria as a war crime and that it could trigger a direct US-Russian military clash.

But his military advisers have warned that a scaled-up response risks drawing the United States into further conflict with Russian Federation and Iran, which support Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad.

"Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria", Trump tweeted.
