"We will work calmly, methodically and professionally, using all opportunities to remove the situation from its current extremely unsafe political peak". The Russian Foreign Ministry dismissed these reports as fake news.

"The evil and the despicable attack left mothers and fathers, infants and children thrashing in pain and gasping for air", he said.

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.

Inspectors from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) are now in Damascus and are expected to visit Douma this weekend. Moscow condemned the Western states for refusing to wait for OPCW's findings before attacking.

Mekdad declined to comment to reporters waiting outside the hotel where the meeting took place. "We know that it is now up to Bashar al-Assad on whether he's going to use chemical weapons again".

At the meeting, the fifth in a week on chemical weapons in Syria, Russia and its supporters again clashed with the United States and its allies over a suspected poison gas attack on April 7 in the Damascus suburb of Douma.

In northern Syria, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said an explosion rocked an area where pro-government Iranian fighters and allied Shi'ite militias were based.

"This very easily could happen in the United States if we're not smart, and if we're not conscious of what's happening", Haley told Chris Wallace on "Fox News Sunday".

The Blues were trailing 2-0 on Saturday lunchtime when the Frenchman was introduced in place of Alvaro Morata in the 60th minute. The season is not lost yet with the Saints heading to Wembley to play Chelsea again in the FA Cup semifinals.

The official IRNA news agency quoted Rouhani as saying The U.S. and "some Western countries do not want Syria to reach permanent stability".

"Last night, USA and allied forces launched precision air strikes against the Syrian regime in response to its use of chemical weapons against innocent civilians".

British opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn said that the legal basis used to support the British role was debatable, adding that he would only support action backed by the UN Security Council. Russian Federation said on Saturday it would consider supplying S-300 surface to-air missile systems to Syria following the Western strikes, but this was not discussed at the meeting with Assad, agencies reported.

But Haley said the US would not pull its troops out of Syria - despite vows by President Trump to bring the military home - until its goals are accomplished. But they have refrained from targeting Assad's government, apart from a volley of US missiles a year ago.

The Pentagon said Saturday that it believes the airstrikes "attacked the heart of the Syrian chemical weapons program", significantly degrading Syria's ability to use such weapons again.

McCain said the message to Assad must be that the cost of using chemical weapons is worse than any perceived benefit. Secretary of Defense James Mattis said both manned and unmanned weapons were used.

Sarin had previously appeared to be the threshold for intervention. "We of course know that our work in Syria is not done", she said.
