How Effective Was Trump's Previous Strike Against Syria?

United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres

Meanwhile, Russia's Embassy to the United Kingdom tweeted a statement by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs' spokeswoman, Maria Zakharova, that denied there was any evidence of a chemical attack.

Syrian government air defenses shot down at least a dozen missiles over the Damascus area, Syrian state media reported. The diplomat once again squarely pinned the blame for the alleged chemical attack in the town of Douma on the Syrian government, citing "large amount of credible reporting" on the incident.

Washington is still willing to cooperate with Moscow on the Syrian issue despite the heightened tensions following the U.S. -led airstrike on Syria, U.S. Ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman said in a statement Saturday.

Russian President Vladimir Putin called the strike on Syria "an act of aggression" against a sovereign state and said Russia strongly condemns it. "We warned that such actions would not be left without consequences". In announcing the strikes, Trump directly blamed Russian Federation for enabling the Syrian regime's use of chemical weapons.

Britain's U.N. Ambassador Karen Pierce meanwhile rejected a charge by a Russian defence ministry spokesman that Britain was involved in staging a fake chemical weapons attack in Douma. "The immediate priority is to avert the danger of war".

Striking a conciliatory note, Macron's office said: "The President of the Republic called for dialogue with Russian Federation to be maintained and stepped up to bring peace and stability back to Syria".

"Our military specialists have visited this place. and they did not find any trace of chlorine or any other chemical substance used against civilians", Lavrov said. Trump asked, adding the two countries are "most responsible for supporting, equipping and financing the criminal Assad regime".
