Russia: Syria chemical attack 'fabrication' by foreign power

DENMARK OUT

The two leaders also said there was a need "to deter the further use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime", as they pledged to work together on the global response to the suspected chemical weapons attack.

Trump was also due to speak with French President Emmanuel Macron, who said France had proof the Syrian government carried out the attack near Damascus, which aid groups have said killed dozens of people, and will decide whether to strike back when all the necessary information has been gathered.

In a statement issued following the meeting, it said there had been agreement around the cabinet table that such actions should not go "unchallenged" and that the United Kingdom would continue to work with the USA and France to co-ordinate an global response.

But he said he personally believes it was an "inexcusable" use of chemical weapons.

The remarks came a day after US President Donald Trump warned Russian Federation that his country would launch missile attacks on Syria after the alleged chemical attack took place.

The officials said they were "confident" in the intelligence, but "not 100 percent sure" about it, the report added.

Russian officials are suggesting that an apparent chemical weapons attack in Syria was a "fabrication" staged by an unnamed foreign intelligence agency.

Speaking at the United Nations on Thursday, Russia's UN ambassador, Vassily Nebenzia, said the top priority had to be to avert a wider war, and he didn't rule out the possibility of a US-Russia conflict.

The U.S. stance on striking Syria is no clearer, even after President Trump tweeted that missiles "will be coming".

"They agreed that the Assad regime had established a pattern of unsafe behaviour in relation to the use of chemical weapons".

They agreed to "keep working closely" on the issue, Mrs May's office said in a statement.

"They agreed to keep working closely together on the global response".

Russia, which has stonewalled diplomatic efforts at the UN Security Council, has vehemently denied a chemical attack took place and accused the West of seeking an excuse for military action.

What has Trump said about the attack?

On Thursday, US officials were quoted as saying that samples from victims had tested positive for chlorine and a nerve agent.

"The government appears to be waiting for instructions from President Donald Trump on how to proceed", Corbyn said in a statement.

The White House said it was still assessing the evidence after its security council meeting on Thursday.

He said: "No decision has been taken, the Cabinet is meeting in full at 3.30 to discuss".

USA officials suspect the Russia-backed Assad regime is behind the attack.

"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". Using poisonous gases against one's own people is far from acceptable and we can't just sit passively and watch.

Parliament voted down British military action against Assad's government in 2013, in an embarrassment for May's predecessor, David Cameron.

That did not necessarily signal, however, that Trump was cooling to the idea of military action, especially given the high stakes in Syria.

Inspectors from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons are expected to arrive in Syria over the weekend to investigate the reported attack, following an invitation from Damascus.
