Worldwide military action against Syria awaits Trump decision

Worldwide military action against Syria awaits Trump decision

British officials said up to 75 people were killed.

Apparently, he failed to run it by the White House National Security team, staffers and USA allies, because the White House later issued a statement explaining that a final decision had not yet been made regarding Syria.

She said USA officials are "continuing to assess intelligence" and are "engaged in conversations with our partners and allies".

As fears of a Russia-West military confrontation mounted, French President Emmanuel Macron expressed his "deep concerns" over the situation in Syria in a phone call with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The No 10 statement issued following the Cabinet meeting said Mrs May had again described the attack on Douma as a "shocking and barbaric act" which represented a further erosion of global law.

This signalled the end of one of the bloodiest assaults of the seven-year war and a major win for the Assad regime.

The U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, said President Donald Trump "has not yet made a decision about possible actions in Syria".

The New York Times noted that the White House is mulling a more "robust" strategy that may include an escalation of force.

Trump met at the White House with the emir of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, who told reporters that he and Trump "see eye to eye" on the Syria problem.

On Wednesday, President Trump tweeted the following: "Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria".

Later Thursday he was noncommittal.

Russian Federation has also been granted a request for the United Nations Security Council to meet today for fresh discussions on Syria.

On Monday, Mr. Trump said a decision on how to respond to the attacks would come in "24 to 48" hours.

The US, the United Kingdom and France are weighing military strikes in Syria over a suspected chemical attack.

"Never said when an attack on Syria would take place".

Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim says the use of chemical weapon against civilians in a Damascus suburb is "unforgivable" but says Turkey is urging all sides to refrain from actions that will cause further turmoil in Syria. Qatar hosts the United States' main air operations centre for the Middle East, which would co-ordinate any American air attack in Syria.

Later, White House lawyer Ty Cobb denied an NBC News report that negotiations with Mueller have broken down.

"Meanwhile, Iran has enough political and operational tools, both inside and outside the region, that all of which are taken into consideration by the U.S. officials, especially the military officials", concluded Tajik.

Under a 2013 US-Russia deal that averted US-led strikes, Syria agreed to give up its chemical weapons stockpile and sign the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) which bans the use of toxic gases in warfare. "We are very concerned when a thing like that can happen".

When asked if he was referring to a war between the United States and Russian Federation, he said, "We can not exclude any possibilities, unfortunately, because we saw messages that are coming from Washington".

More cautious observers contend that the move would be risky They point to Russian, Syrian, and Iranian air defense systems deployed inside the country that can potentially shoot down USA air power. "We know a chemical weapon was used".

At stake in Syria is the potential for confrontation, if not outright conflict, between the United States and Russian Federation, former Cold War foes whose relations have deteriorated in recent years over Moscow's intervention in Ukraine, its interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election and its support for Syrian President Bashar Assad.
