Western powers walk legal tightrope with Syria strikes

In London, British Prime Minister Theresa May held an emergency cabinet meeting to discuss support for U.S. action against the Syrian regime.

Event if Trump did, al-Atrash added, it could not disrupt the rapport among Syrian people, army and government. The incident, said to have taken place on Saturday, reportedly affected dozens of people.

Russian Federation does not seek praise, only genuine cooperation in the fight against terrorism, Zakharova said, commenting on US President Donald Trump's recent tweet.

"Germany will not take part in possible - there have not been any decisions yet, I want to stress that - military action", Merkel said following a meeting with Danish Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen in Berlin.

Russian Federation says threats by the U.S. and France to launch a military aggression against Syria violate the UN Charter, calling on the West to "seriously consider" the consequences of such intimidation. "We'll be coming out of Syria, like, very soon", he said.

Macron said Thursday that France has proof that the Syrian government launched chlorine gas attacks and said France would not tolerate "regimes that think everything is permitted".

In response, Trump tweeted that while Russian Federation vowed to protect Syria against attack, "Get ready Russian Federation, because [attacks] will be coming, nice and new and "smart!"

France says Syria has maintained a clandestine chemical arms program since 2013 - when Damascus ostensibly signed on to the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) - which could encourage the use of such weapons by other repressive regimes.

The spokeswoman further stressed that Russian military personnel and doctors had visited Douma but found no traces of a chemical attack. "Numerous, large-scale attacks on another country without Congressional authorisation are unconstitutional, and they push the USA closer to what could be an interminable, all-out conflict in Syria". She called the Syrian government a "murderous regime".

"The violation of conventions doesn't give you the right to use force", said Francoise Saulnier, legal director at the Doctors Without Borders aid group, which has a long history of intervening in humanitarian crises.

US President Donald Trump has threatened to strike Syria in response to an alleged gas attack in the Arab country.

At stake in Syria is the potential for confrontation, if not outright conflict, between the USA 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 US presidential election and its support for Syrian President Bashar Assad.
