Syria:Russia says no evidence of Douma chemical attack

UN Security Council

A resolution at the Security Council needs nine votes in favor and no vetoes by Russia, China, France, Britain or the United States to pass. He met with leaders in Colombia, Argentina and Panama in August.

Trump said, however, that Washington was "getting more clarity" on who was responsible for the attack.

The Russian military said on Monday its medics had examined patients in a hospital in Douma and had found no traces of a chemical attack, Interfax news agency reported.

"Everybody is going to pay a price".

Meanwhile, a US official on Monday confirmed to Fox News that Israel conducted an airstrike on a Bashar al-Assad air base in Syria on Sunday night.

American ambassador Nikki Haley said the United States "went the extra mile" to get Russian support for the resolution to ensure that a new investigative body would be impartial, independent and professional - things she said would not be guaranteed by a rival Russian resolution.

"We have reached the moment when the world must see justice done", Haley told the council.

The United States fired missiles on a Syrian air base a year ago in response to the killing of dozens of civilians in a sarin gas attack in an opposition-held town.

Syria and its allies have denied all responsibility. He has been hawkish on Syria in the past, advocating for more airstrikes.

The UN Security Council, gathered in NY, is expected to vote as Tuesday on rival U.S. and Russian proposals to probe chemical attacks in Syria.

In their second discussion in two days about Saturday's suspected chemical attack, the two leaders "reiterated their desire for a firm response from the global community to these new violations of the chemical weapons ban", the French president's office said.

"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".

US Ambassador Nikki Haley told Security Council diplomats that the United States wanted a vote on the measure, even though Russian Federation said it contained "some unacceptable elements".

The situation has "gone beyond the scope of what was acceptable even during the Cold War", he said.

In anticipation for a potential strike, Syria's military forces across the country were also simultaneously mobilising, according to a war monitor. He said an escalation of the conflict could have "unimaginable consequences".

U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley didn't raise the prospect of military action directly but hinted the U.S. may not wait for the findings of a United Nations investigation.

Russian Federation voted for the cease-fire but has repeatedly used its veto power as a permanent member to block any measure that threatens a Syrian offensive against rebels, largely to protect the government of Assad.

Under the current draft resolution, UNIMI would be established for one year and work with the OPCW to identify perpetrators of chemical attacks.

"Our resolutions are similar, but there are important differences".

The attack comes nearly exactly a year after a chemical atrocity in the northern Syrian town of Khan Sheikhoun killed dozens of people.

Mattis said that the U.S.is "working with our allies and partners from North Atlantic Treaty Organisation to Qatar and elsewhere, we are going to address this issue". Another option is striking at areas where the Assad regime houses its chemical weapons. "The worldwide community must not let this happen". Putin made the remarks during a telephone conversation with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Xinhua quoted a Kremlin statement as saying.
