Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban's office said on Monday an "irresponsible" migration policy on the part of the European Union.

Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the United Nations, had said Sunday on CBS's Face the Nation that details of fresh economic sanctions would be announced on Monday.

And the United States called for a clear condemnation by the OPCW of "the Syrian government for its reign of chemical terror".

Both British Prime Minister Theresa May and French President Emmanuel Macron faced anger yesterday from their lawmakers for conducting the air strikes with the United States.

Russia - Syria's ally - has said worldwide chemical weapons experts are due to arrive in the area on Wednesday to check the claims.

Syrian activists said more than 40 people were killed but Syria and Russian Federation deny the attack and Russian Federation even accused Britain of staging the attack.

In a telephone conversation with his Iranian counterpart, Hassan Rouhani, Putin and Rouhani agreed that the Western strikes had damaged the chances of achieving a political resolution in the seven-year Syria conflict, according to a Kremlin statement.

The inspectors were due to attempt to visit the Douma site.

Douma, which lies in the eastern Goutha district on the outskirts of the capital, was one of the last bastions near Damascus of rebels fighting to topple Assad, and the alleged attack took place amid a ferocious government offensive. It also followed the purported use of chemical weapons there on April 7. And the Russian ambassador to the Netherlands, Alexander Shulgin, said it was a "blatant lie" that Moscow was hampering the investigation.

"They are hard for us, but will do more damage to the United States of America and Europe", RIA news agency quoted Serebrennikov as saying.

President Donald Trump on Sunday said a USA -led missile attack on Syria's chemical weapons program was "perfectly carried out".

Syrian state TV reported overnight that anti-aircraft defenses had shot down missiles fired at an air base in the Homs area, and a media unit run by the Lebanese group Hezbollah said missiles had also targeted an air base near Damascus.

Mrs May will ask for an emergency debate to allow more time for discussion in a nod to the fury among MPs at not being consulted, but she is not offering a vote.

"And we can not wait to alleviate further humanitarian suffering caused by chemical weapons attacks".

But she will be questioned over why she broke with a convention to seek parliamentary approval for the action, a decision that she and her ministers say was driven by the need to act quickly.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said the military strikes violated the UN Charter and that if they continue, "it will inevitably entail chaos in global relations", according to a Kremlin statement on Sunday.

As the Kremlin press office reports, the leaders exchanged views on the situation after the U.S. and its allies' missile strike in the Syrian territory.
