United Nations council rejects Russian Federation resolution on Syria

This was playing with fire after Russia - Syria's strongest ally - had warned that a missile attack would be met with force by Moscow, raising fears of a straight fight between the U.S. and Russia. One of the failings of the accord between Russian Federation and the United States that was supposed to rid Syria of chemical arms in 2014 was that it was based on Syria's "declared" stockpiles, a nuance Mr. Kerry took care to note.

Volatility on the Russian market has soared since Washington imposed fresh sanctions against Moscow on April 6, targeting major Russian companies and some of the country's most prominent businessmen.

U.S. aircraft including B-1 bombers and ships were used in the attack, according to multiple United States defense officials. And, you know, he's basically saying that - you know, what Russia's said all along. More than 100 precision missiles targeted a scientific research center near Damascus, a chemical weapons storage facility west of Homs and a storage facility and command post near Homs.

The White Helmets, a civil defense agency, blamed the Assad regime for the alleged chemical attack, which it said killed 78 civilians and injured hundreds of others.

This comes days after the US, Britain, and France conducted "precision strikes" in Syria on Friday in response to an alleged chemical weapons attack by the Syrian government.

"The US - the possessor of the largest arsenal of chemical weapons - has no ethical proper in charge different nations".

However, Trump "seemed to believe that other individual countries would largely equal the United States, was furious that his administration was being portrayed in the media as taking by far the toughest stance on Russian Federation", while he had said that Washington would not take the lead and would only match the number of expulsions.

Russian officials from President Vladimir Putin on down condemned the strike as an act of aggression against a sovereign state carried out on the pretext of staged chemical attack.

Haley announced on CBS's "Face the Nation" on Sunday that the US Treasury Department would formalize additional sanctions on Russian Federation the following day, but The Post reported that President Donald Trump had yet to sign off on the move.

Appearing live on French television BFM and online investigative site Mediapart, the 40-year-old leader said the US, Britain and France had "full global legitimacy to intervene" with the strikes, to enforce worldwide humanitarian law.

Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said the U.S. military had kept its strikes limited because it knew a wider attack would spark retaliation from Damascus and its allies and inflame the region.

Meanwhile, the Defense Ministry in a statement said Russian military bases in Syria had not been affected by the joint strike. In fact, Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said no additional attacks were planned.

His choice of words recalled a similar claim associated with President George W. Bush following the US -led invasion of Iraq. The mechanism would look at cases where the OPCW fact-finding mission has established chemical weapons were used or likely used.

One of the sites struck on Saturday, the Barzeh research and development center, has always been known to American intelligence officials and to global inspectors, according to a senior intelligence official.

The defense ministry also said today that they were considering helping Damascus beef up its air defenses, including giving them Russia's much-vaunted - this S-300 surface-to-air missile systems.

A team from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons is in Syria to investigate the Douma incident and was expected to visit the town.

British Prime Minister Theresa May, speaking Saturday about the aftermath of the airstrikes, tied Russia's support of Assad to what she described as a destructive pattern by Putin.

Lavrov urged more diplomatic contacts over the issue and said Russian Federation was open to further telephone contact between Trump and President Vladimir Putin. "I think that's the right approach", Haley added.
