Russian Federation warns of war over Syria strikes

Russian Federation warns of war over Syria strikes

-Russian ties in a one-on-one summit with President Trump.

A day before a team from the worldwide chemical weapons watchdog was to arrive in Douma, just east of Damascus, Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Maj.

British Prime Minister Theresa May won backing from her senior ministers on Thursday to take unspecified action with the United States and France to deter further use of chemical weapons by Syria.

This year at least five Russians working for a private security firm in Syria were killed and dozens more injured in American strikes, but again the incident did not draw a military response from Moscow.

Asked about Trump's tweet about an impending attack on Syria, former Defense Secretary William Cohen, who ran the Pentagon for President Bill Clinton, said on CNN that it "compromises the mission somewhat".

The WHO cautioned that it has no formal role in forensic inquiries into the use of chemical weapons.

Konashenkov said Friday that Britain was "directly involved in the provocation", but didn't elaborate or provide evidence.

Donald Trump abandoned his instincts as an impulsive and go-it-alone president in Syria, deliberating at length with his military commanders and working closely with US allies in Europe to confront President Bashar al-Assad for an alleged chemical weapons attack.

"Russia is calling an emergency session of the UN Security Council to discuss the aggressive actions of the USA and its allies", the Kremlin said in an earlier statement.

After US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley promised a response "either way", Russian Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia said he feared Washington was looking for a military option. He didn't elaborate or name the state.

The chemical attack dispute is expected to further harm Russia-U.S. relations after tensions between the two sides have already soared to a new high following mutual expulsions of large numbers of diplomatic personnel.

Russian Federation first intervened in Syria in 2015, turning the tables in the multi-front civil war in favour of ally President Bashar al-Assad.

"Russia must decide if it will continue down this dark path, or if it will join with civilized nations as a force for stability and peace", Trump said.

"The most important thing is to refrain from ill-considered and risky actions that would constitute a gross violation of the UN Charter and would have unpredictable consequences", Putin's office said in a statement after he and French President Emmanuel Macron spoke by telephone.

In Moscow, the head of a Russian parliamentary defence committee, Vladimir Shamanov, said Russia was in direct contact with the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff about the situation. He said "the Cold War is back - with a vengeance but with a difference", because safeguards that managed the risk of escalation in the past, "no longer seem to be present". "Russian Federation can complain all it wants about fake news, but no one is buying its lies and its cover-ups".

Trump's spokeswoman dismissed this idea, and pointedly refused to acknowledge that concern about the risks of a direct confrontation with Russian Federation would hold the USA military back.

Russia's United Nations ambassador warned that US-led strikes could lead to a confrontation between the world's two preeminent nuclear powers.

This was playing with fire after Russia - Syria's strongest ally - had warned that a missile attack would be met with force by Moscow, raising fears of a straight fight between the USA and Russia.

Since Saturday, when images of ashen toddlers struggling for breath emerged after the alleged attack, there has been a sustained military buildup in the eastern Mediterranean. "Thank you to France and the United Kingdom for their wisdom and the power of their fine Military". "I hope no one would dare to launch such an adventure now", Lavrov said.

The allies of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad were eager yesterday to lay blame for the crisis not with him but with Mr Trump.

"Any use of chemical weapons is abhorrent". The U.S. Defense Department said it did not comment on potential military actions.

Russian leader Vladimir Putin reaffirmed the Kremlin's skepticism about the allies' Douma claim, saying Russian military experts had found no trace of the attack. He also said the actions had damaged global relations. On Friday, Russia's ambassador to the United States, Anatoly Antonov, warned of "consequences" after the allied attacks. However, there was no official announcement from Syria on the matter and there was also no indication of Syrian government forces entering the city Thursday.
