British PM May summons ministers to discuss possible military action in Syria

"Now we have to make some further decisions, so they will be made fairly soon", added first-term commander-in-chief, who earlier appeared to equivocate on the timing of strikes.

Russian Federation has warned the US and its allies against any steps that could destabilize the situation in Syria.

As tensions mount between the USA and Russian Federation over a possible U.S. strike, the Kremlin said a crisis communications link with the United States meant to avoid an accidental clash over Syria was being used by both sides. He added that it would have an "utterly destructive impact on the Syrian settlement".

Peskov wouldn't say if Moscow could use a Russian-U.S. military hotline to avoid escalation in the event of a U.S. strike, saying only that "the hotline exists and has remained active".

"Our president has not yet made a decision about possible action in Syria", Haley told a Security Council meeting.

The U.S. and its allies have threatened to respond militarily to an alleged chemical attack near Damascus last weekend.

President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday that he hoped common sense would prevail and that the situation would stabilise.

Erdogan said he'll talk to Putin later on Thursday, a day after he talked to President Donald Trump about Syria.

He criticized Russia's support of the Syrian regime saying "Russia must decide if it will continue down this dark path".

After a Russian ambassador in Lebanon said Russia would shoot down any USA missiles and launch sites, a senior military official giving a briefing on Wednesday said that Russia was "following the situation closely", adding that the US coalition "ought to be occupying itself with the restoration of the destroyed city" of Raqqa instead of considering air strikes against the Syrian government.

"Japan can not make a judgment on whether Assad's government forces really used chemical weapons", a senior Foreign Ministry official said of the latest attack. The organization said they were due to arrive on Saturday.

Syrian government forces have regained full control of the city as the worldwide community considers its response.

Assad says the Western threats endanger global peace and security, and that military action would only contribute to the "further destabilization" of the region.

"Syria's enemies are angry because of its military advances against terrorist groups", Ali Akbar Velayati, Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei's top adviser, told Iranian state TV during his visit to eastern Ghouta's bomb-shattered ruins.

Earlier in the week, Trump suggested he was committed to ordering strikes in Syria. "We haven't laid out any specific actions we plan to take". Syrian activists and rescuers say the attack on Douma killed more than 40 people, allegations denied by the government.

Conservative former London mayoral candidate Zac Goldsmith, tweeted: "We need a clear response to the Syrian chemical outrage". Russia's ambassador to Lebanon said any missiles fired at Syria would be shot down and the launching sites targeted a stark warning of a potential major confrontation.

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.

Parliament voted down British military action against Assad's government in 2013, in an embarrassment for May's predecessor, David Cameron. That is not a legal requirement, though it is a convention.

Opposition activists, rescue workers and medics say dozens of people died in a suspected chemical attack on the rebel-held town of Douma on Saturday.

Ms. Sanders said Mr. Trump would speak later with French President Emmanuel Macron and British Prime Minister Theresa May.

"We're looking very, very seriously, very closely, at that whole situation", the President said from the Cabinet Room.

"That was the first step in this process, but we're continuing to look at a number of options", she said.

The possibility of a military strike on Syria was discussed by the United States and its partners, particularly France and the United Kingdom, in the wake of reports on an alleged chemical weapons attack in the Syrian city of Duma.
