Strikes hit Syria as country had 'chance for peaceful future': Moscow

Strikes hit Syria as country had 'chance for peaceful future': Moscow

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.

The UN Security Council is to meet again on Friday, at Russia's request, to try to defuse the standoff, as United States President Donald Trump appeared to back away from imminent action, days after warning Russian Federation to "get ready" for missile strikes.

Noting that Trump extended "an olive branch" to both Russian Federation and Iran in his speech, Taleblu added that "the question for the U.S. and the coalition is how long are they prepared to sustain this", he asked.

"So we've got to take the fight to the Russians and the Iranians, they still haven't paid no real price for this support".

"They're cowardly political thugs", Klimov said of the U.S. administration. There is a heightened "danger of escalation" because of the Russian military presence in Syria, Nebenzia said after a private meeting of the UN Security Council in NY.

The United States, France and Britain defended their military action as legal during the Security Council meeting. She said of the alleged chemical attack that "Russia can complain all it wants about fake news, but no one is buying its lies and its cover-ups". You have five permanent members, each one of them has a veto.

"We can not depend on the mood of someone on the other side of the ocean when he wakes up", the Tass news agency quoted him as saying. When that might happen remains unclear.

Russian Federation has condemned US, UK and French strikes against targets in Syria over the alleged use of chemical weapons as the Western allies argued they were essential to deter the future use of illegal munitions. "We know for a fact that on April 3-6, there has been strong pressure exactly from London on representatives of the so-called White Helmets for the prompt execution of the pre-planned provocation", a Russian military spokesman told reporters.

"Again, we are being threatened", Antonov continued.

"Russia strongly condemns the attack on Syria where Russian servicemen are helping the legitimate Government in the war on terrorism", the Kremlin press office quoted Putin as saying.

"They agreed it was vital that the use of chemical weapons did not go unchallenged, and on the need to deter the further use of chemical weapons by the Assad regimen", a spokesman said, adding that they were still working on an worldwide response.

Douma and the sprawling eastern Ghouta region near the capital, Damascus, had been under rebel control since 2012 and was a thorn in the side of Assad's government, threatening his seat of power with missiles and potential advances for years.

One senior official said Trump has asked his military to consider options that would include punishing Russian Federation and Iran - Syria's other main foreign backer - in part over his growing level of exasperation with Putin.
