Russia says UN delaying fact-finding mission visit in Syria

Russia says UN delaying fact-finding mission visit in Syria

The United States and its allies said Sunday there are no plans for further attacks against Syria, but warned additional chemical attacks could prompt military response.

The U.S., France and Britain launched dozens of airstrikes early Saturday at sites they said were linked to a chemical weapons program.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Sunday more Western attacks on Syria would bring chaos to world affairs, and Washington prepared to increase pressure on Russia with new economic sanctions.

Assad agreed to turn over his chemical weapons after a sarin nerve gas attack near the capital in August 2013, but Western countries say compliance has been partial.

"No Syrian weapon had any effect on what we did", said McKenzie.

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban's office said on Monday an "irresponsible" migration policy on the part of the European Union. While the use of chemical agents against civilians can not and must not go unpunished, the manner in which the USA and its allies have acted raises serious questions.

The Western countries blame Syrian President Bashar al-Assad for the attack which killed dozens, but the Syrian government and its ally Russian Federation have denied any involvement. The Syrian government and its Russian ally deny involvement. He criticized Washington and its allies for attacking without waiting for inspectors from the worldwide chemical weapons watchdog group to visit Douma, just outside Damascus.

The Syrian military late Saturday declared eastern Ghouta, the former rebel enclave of which Douma is the main town, fully retaken after a blistering two-month assault.

Nikki Haley, the United States ambassador to the UN, said that new sanctions against Russian Federation would be announced by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on Monday.

Faisal Mekdad, Syria's deputy foreign minister, said Monday that government officials have met with the delegation, which has been in Damascus for three days, a number of times to discuss cooperation.

Macron says the joint military strikes by the U.S., France and Britain against Syrian targets were carried out in retaliation after the allies obtained evidence that the government of Bashar Assad had used chemical weapons against its own people.

"If you look at what Russian Federation is doing, they continue to be involved with all the wrong actors, whether their involvement in Ukraine, whether you look at how they are supporting Venezuela, whether you look in Syria and their way of propping up Assad and working with Iran, that continues to be a problem", Haley said on Fox News Sunday.

"They are hard for us, but will do more damage to the United States of America and Europe", RIA quoted Serebrennikov as saying.

Responding to criticism that Trump last month somehow encouraged Assad to use chlorine bombs against his how people by indicating that he wanted 2,000 USA troops in Syria to withdraw, Haley said the president has made it clear soldiers will remain until the job is finished.

Before and after satellite pictures have revealed the damage of Saturday's US, French and British strikes that were meant to punish Syria for an alleged chemical weapons attack.

The Western leaders were also facing scrutiny at home over their actions. In response to the attack, the U.S. Inspectors from the global chemical weapons watchdog OPCW were trying over the weekend to reach sites related to the suspected poison attack in Douma.

"I am glad the strikes were undertaken", she said.
