Russia Never Supplied Dual-Use Technologies to Syria - Senior Lawmaker

World war 3 Russia UK Syria chemical attack

The British envoy to the OPCW said it had recorded 390 allegations of the use of banned chemicals in Syria since 2014, and that a failure by the OPCW to act risked allowing "further barbaric use of chemical weapons".

"We are prepared to sustain this pressure, if the Syrian regime is foolish enough to test our will", she said.

US Ambassador Nikki Haley has indicated new economic sanctions will be announced today against Russian Federation for enabling the government of Syrian leader Bashar Assad to continue using chemical weapons.

Assad told a group of visiting Russian lawmakers that the strikes were accompanied by a campaign of "lies and misinformation" against Syria and Russia in the U.N. Security Council. But the rollout of new sanctions is usually closely guarded, in part to prevent people subjected to them from quickly moving their money around.

Russian Federation on Saturday failed to win UN backing for a condemnation of military strikes launched by the United States, Britain and France on Syria in retaliation for an alleged chemical weapons attack, reported AFP.

Britain argued that the strikes were "both right and legal" to alleviate humanitarian suffering from repeated use of toxic gas in attacks in Syria's seven-year war.

PM Modi hopeful of fruitful visit to Sweden and UK

Reports earlier this week claimed that the USA military would notify its Russian counterparts of potential targets before a strike.

President Donald Trump said a US-led missile attack on Syria's chemical weapons program was "perfectly carried out".

Speaking to the BBC, Britain's Foreign Secretary (Minister) Boris Johnson said that Western powers had no plans for further missile strikes, though they would assess their options if Damascus used chemical weapons again.

" It represents the will of this overwhelming majority of people to the Security Council, for example China, so over the next few weeks and days, we will be chasing this using the secretary overall and people visit the Russians to return in to the global fold and help us resolve this battle", she clarified Sunday.

Following up on President Donald Trump's threat, the USA - along with allies Britain and France - rained cruise missiles at three locations in Syria on Saturday, the biggest strike by the West in the seven years of the war in Syria. "This is not about trying to turn the tide of the conflict in Syria", he told the BBC, adding that Russian Federation was the only country able to pressure Assad to negotiate an end to the conflict. What happens next, she said, is up to Assad and his Russian and Iranian allies.

Russian military police had been deployed in Douma, raising complaints from the Syrian opposition that evidence of chemical weapons use might no longer be found. "Reports show a lot of care was taken not to hit Russian targets, which is a good sign and the market should take heart from that", said Salman Ahmed, chief investment strategist at Lombard Odier investment managers in London.
