  • Syria Damascus air strikes

Putin warned that 'if such actions, carried out in violation of the United Nations Charter, are repeated, that would inevitably provoke chaos in global relations, ' according to a statement from the Kremlin.

Meanwhile, Putin has described the attacks as an "act of aggression" and warned they could worsen the humanitarian crisis in Syria. The missile strike followed a week of chemical attacks that took the lives of dozens of civilians in the rebel-controlled town of Douma that has led the opposition to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Moscow condemned the Western states for refusing to wait for their findings before attacking.

Mekdad declined to comment to reporters waiting outside the hotel where the meeting took place.

U.S. Representative Peter Roskam, a Republican, praised Trump's action saying in a statement, "Assad must pay a price for ruthlessly slaughtering his own citizens with chemical weapons".

There was "information" that showed that both sarin and chlorine were used in the most recent chemical weapons attack in Syria, prompting the United States strikes, the official said.

Diplomats said negotiations on the draft resolution would begin on Monday and it was not immediately clear when the United States, France and Britain wanted to put it to a vote.

Among the contentious proposals, the draft resolution would establish an independent investigation of allegations of toxic gas attacks in Syria with the aim of identifying the perpetrators.

US ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley cautioned that chemical attacks similar to those in Syria "could happen" in the United States if more precautions aren't taken domestically. But he appeared to contradict that message when he said on Saturday that Western allies were prepared to "sustain" the military response if Assad does not stop using prohibited chemical weapons.

Haley said she had spoken to President Trump, who said if the Syrian regime uses "this poison gas" again, the United States is "locked and loaded".

"So, I think it is very important to do something to reestablish deterrents, but also as a punitive thing to really punish the Syrians for doing this", Hill said.

Say said working with refugees has not only touched her life, but it's also helped shape her views on foreign affairs.

A bullish Bashar Al Assad was in a good mood when he met a group of visiting Russian lawmakers after the attacks were more limited than predicted following Mr Trump's initially aggressive response to the Douma attack.

The photos, released by an Israeli imaging company, show a research site at Barzah overlooking Damascus as well as two weapons storage facilities in Homs.
