Russia likely to call United Nations meeting over Syria attack - Russian lawmaker

US has blood samples verifying chemical attack

He says Moscow has "irrefutable information that it was another fabrication". The ministry also pointed at previous use of chemicals by the rebels in fighting with Syrian government troops.

"I hope no one will dare take such a reckless step".

Syria and its ally Russia have denied such an attack took place, and Moscow has accused Britain of helping to stage the Douma incident to stoke anti-Russian hysteria. Syria's civil war, which began as a popular uprising against Assad, is now in its eighth year.

"During their talk on April 13, the Russian president referred to the French leader's public assertions that those facts existed and asked to share them, because if it were true, we would be the first who would be determined to stymie such illegal activity, that is the use of chemical weapons", he explained.

A team of inspectors from the OPCW arrived in Syria on Thursday and Friday and had been expected to start their investigation into the alleged Douma attack on Saturday.

Lavrov said Russian Federation expects OPCW team to quickly visit the site.

Trump's message to Iran, Russia after Syria strikes
The statement also accused Syria of providing military bases for Iran, putting its "territory, forces and leadership in danger". Russia's Ministry of Defense claimed Syria's air defense systems intercepted 71 missiles launched in the airstrikes.

Washington: US President Donald Trump has not yet made his "final decision" on how to respond to an alleged chemical weapons attack in Syria, the White House said after he met with his top national security advisors.

However, the Observatory says the facilities were evacuated by the Syrian government days before.

Russia's ambassador to the United States warned that there would be consequences for the US-led military strikes, adding that it was not acceptable to insult Russia's President. He didn't elaborate or name the state.

The attack has drawn worldwide outrage and prompted the United States and its allies to consider a military strike on Syria, something Moscow has strongly warned against.

In a reference to the US, he said that it "it would only benefit those who are protected by the ocean and expect to sit there and engage in continuous efforts to stir up the region in order to advance their geopolitical goals".

Anatoly Antonov, the Russian Ambassador to the United States, says the military action threatens Russia - and there will be consequences. "These should be contacts between the diplomats, which imply that we do not include ultimatums and threats", Lavrov said.
