May recalled the ministers from their Easter holiday for a special cabinet meeting in Downing Street later today to discuss Britain's response to what she has cast as a barbaric attack that can not go unchallenged.

Earlier US President Donald Trump appeared to row back from a suggestion on Wednesday that missile strikes were imminent, insisting in his latest tweet that he had never set out a timetable for military action.

The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons had said it meant to send investigators to Douma to look for evidence of a chemical attack.

Theresa May is reportedly considering military actions against Syria in the wake of a chemical gas attack.

Vassily Nebenzia wants to hear from Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on the threat to worldwide peace and security from possible military action against Syria by the United States and its allies.

The No 10 statement issued following the Cabinet meeting said Mrs May had again described the attack on Douma as a "shocking and barbaric act" which represented a further erosion of global law.

The UK government has agreed to back the United States and France in response to last weekend's chemical attack in the Syrian town of Douma.

A military operation would be a big deal for Macron, his first military action as president, at a time of heightened domestic tensions over labor law changes.

According to state-run Syrian News Agency (SANA), an official source at the Syrian Foreign Ministry said Thursday that the government will cooperate fully with the OPCW fact-finding mission and that it would hold the West responsible for any delays in that mission. "Could be very soon or not so soon at all!"

Trump evasive over Syria missiles threat
The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons said its fact-finding team is en route to Syria to start work April 14. Russian Federation and Syria have invited OPCW experts to visit the town of Douma in order to find out what had happened there.

Following a discussion in which every member present made a contribution, cabinet agreed it was vital that the use of chemical weapons did not go unchallenged, the document said.

Formally, the prime minister has the right to go to war without approval from parliament, but a convention has been established in previous conflicts where MPs have a vote either before or shortly after military action begins.

The Times and the Daily Telegraph newspapers reported that the cabinet would back May in joining any US-led action, as Royal Navy submarines armed with cruise missiles were moving into range.

Trump had earlier tweeted that missiles "will be coming" and Russian Federation should "get ready".

Britain has been working with its allies to determine what happened, and "we are rapidly reaching that understanding, " she said during a visit to the English city of Birmingham.

"What we don't want is bombardment which leads to escalation and leads to a hot war between Russian Federation and America over the skies of Syria".

Meanwhile, Labour MP for East Leeds Richard Burgon expressed his opposition to this "push for war" and said the PM "must call a vote in parliament" before taking action.

While Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has condemned Assad for killing "innocent kids in the Douma chemical attack", he also warned against using Syria as a place to flex military muscle.

Moscow has advised the U.S. against attacking Syria and is calling for an investigation by the OPCW to determine if chemical weapons were indeed used in Douma.
