Saudis Want Action Over Syria Chemical Attack

Emmett Howard | 11 April, 2018, 12:49

President Donald Trump says the USA has many military options as it decides how to respond to an apparent poison gas attack in central Syria that killed more than 40 people. "It was awful", Trump said at the start of a Cabinet meeting where possible military action was discussed.

The Russian envoy was referring to comments made by the Russian chief of staff, General Valery Gerasimov, who in March warned that Moscow would shoot down missiles fired towards Syria and would target their launch sites if the attacks threatened members of the Russian army.

Her statement comes a day after she issued a blistering condemnation of Russian Federation over the alleged chemical attack, saying Moscow's hands are "covered in the blood" of Syrian children.

"Through the relevant channels we already conveyed to the USA that armed force under mendacious pretext against Syria - where, at the request of the legitimate government of a country, Russian troops have been deployed - could lead to grave repercussions", he said.

"China supports a comprehensive, objective and impartial investigation of the incident concerned so that a conclusion that is based on substantiated evidence and that can stand the test of history and facts can be reached, so that the perpetrators and responsible parties can be brought to justice", Wu Haitao, China's deputy permanent representative to the United Nations, told the Security Council.

Shamanov emphasized that a retaliatory Russian strike could target US navy ships and aircraft.

President Trump is promising to act forcefully over what he says was an atrocious use of chemical weapons by the Syrian government.

"Russia, through the UN Security Council, has the ability to get a unanimous outcome from the UN Security Council so that action should be taken, and by using its veto [it is] preventing that action to stop the conflict in Syria". Bolivia voted against the draft resolution, while China abstained.

Haley accused Russian Federation of protecting Syria at the United Nations while Moscow's military advisers in Damascus are helping Assad wage a "starve or surrender campaign" against Syrian civilians that includes the use of chemical weapons.

But Mr Nebenzia accused the United States of moving the world towards a "dangerous threshold".

The United States has repeatedly offered measures to establish an independent UN investigation of who is behind the chemical attacks in Syria.

"China's position on chemical weapons has been consistent and clear: we are firmly opposed to the use of chemical weapons by any state, organization or individual under any circumstances. The global community must not let this happen".

Experts speculated that the retaliatory strikes, should they happen, would likely focus on facilities linked to past reports of Syrian chemical weapons attacks.

President Bashar al-Assad's government and Russian Federation, his most powerful ally, said there was no evidence that a gas attack had taken place and the claim was bogus.
