UN Security Council Refuses to Condemn US Attack on Syria

Putin called the military action a violation of the UN Charter and warned that if it continues, "it will inevitably entail chaos in global relations", according to the statement.

Stepping up the pressure on Syria's President, US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley indicated the sanctions to be announced Monday would be aimed at companies "that were dealing with equipment" related to Mr Assad's alleged chemical weapons use.

The United States, Britain and France launched airstrikes Friday night against Syrian research, storage and military sites after the Assad regime was blamed for a chemical weapons attack that killed dozens of civilians.

At least 40 people are believed to have died in the attack on Douma, until the weekend the last rebel-held town outside the Syrian capital.

Henne, says the airstrikes could create a bigger problem; specifically with Russian Federation, an alley of the Assad regime. "If earlier they used to say they were punishing us for Ukraine, now the wording has been changed dramatically".

The U.S. Department of Defense released video footage of tomahawk missiles being launched from a submarine in the Mediterranean Sea at targets in Syria as part of a "multi-national strike operation against the Syrian government".

"I urge all Member States to show restraint in these unsafe circumstances and to avoid any acts that could escalate the situation and worsen the suffering of the Syrian people", he said. "In addition we expect our regional allies and partners to take greater responsibility both militarily and financially for securing the region".

"You will see that Russian sanctions will be coming down".

"We haven't said that we're going to bring them home in six months". The inspectors were due to attempt to visit the Douma site. 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.

While the Russians continue to support these heinous war crimes, the Syrian regime continues to violate its obligations under the Chemical Weapons Convention and the UN's Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.

The warning came a day after Donald Trump's statement that the United States was "locked and loaded" to strike Syria again if the country carries out new chemical attacks. Mattis reportedly warned of a possible Russian and Iranian response.

The US President has declared the US, UK and French strikes on Syria a success, as Russian Federation has described them unlawful.

Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said Britain had a duty to show that Syria had not "got away with it" and it was standing up against Assad's "barbarism". That suggests that despite Russia's warnings of dire consequences, it appears Russian commanders are being extremely careful not to respond in a way that could escalate tensions with the United States into a shooting war.

European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said the European Union wants to use a major meeting on Syria in Brussels next week to give impetus to United Nations peace efforts following the airstrikes.
