Russian Federation proposed a draft United Nations Security Council resolution on Saturday, seen by Reuters, that would condemn "the aggression against the Syrian Arab Republic by the US and its allies in violation of worldwide law and the U.N. Charter". The United States, France and Britain fired 105 missiles overnight in retaliation, targeting Syria's chemical weapons program.

Russian deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich took an apparent swipe at Trump's tweets.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Mr Trump held a meeting with his team to discuss the situation, but "no final decision has been made".

"We are confident that we have crippled Syria's chemical weapons program".

But U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis struck a cautious note, telling lawmakers that the need to "stop the murder of innocent people" had to be weighed up against the risk of things "escalating out of control". Lavrov did not offer evidence to back up his claim.

Trump said the strikes were meant to deter the use of chemical weapons like the attack on civilians in the Syrian town of Douma last week, and that the USA was prepared to continue the attacks until the Syrian regime stops using chemical weapons.

Russia's theories about last Saturday's suspected chemical attack are reminiscent of previous contradictions. What is less clear is whether sarin - the agent used in the chemical attack last April that prompted USA missile strikes - or a similar agent was also used.

Russian Federation today accused the West of having the sole aim in Syria of overthrowing the government as it urged US, French and British leaders to refrain from military action. Moscow kept up its resistance on Friday. Russia views the military strikes against Syria as an act of aggression and a declaration of war on a sovereign state, Sherin said, according to Russian news agency Sputnik.

With the Alberta oil stranded in that province due to the political obstructionist approach to prosperity being displayed by B.C. It is not clear whether Ottawa's financial and legislative backstops would ensure the pipeline gets built.

"We have irrefutable evidence that this was another staged event, and that the secret services of a certain state that is now at the forefront of a Russophobic campaign was involved in this staged event", he said during a press conference.

The investigators, who are only mandated to determine if chemical weapons were used and not who used them, were expected to start their investigations into the Douma incident on Saturday, the Netherlands-based organization said.

Diplomats have expressed concern that the experts could be used as hostages or human shields. A French frigate, UK Royal Navy submarines laden with cruise missiles and the U.S.S Donald Cook, an American destroyer equipped with Tomahawk land attack missiles, have all moved into range of Syria's sun-bleached coast.

Following the USA -led strikes, however, "we consider it possible to return to examination of this issue not only in regard to Syria but to other countries as well", Rudskoi said.

"The immediate priority is to avert the danger of war", said Moscow's United Nations ambassador Vassily Nebenzia on Thursday.

The Russian Defense Ministry on Friday accused Britain of staging a fake chemical attack in the Syrian town of Douma last weekend, a bold charge that comes amid Moscow's stern warnings to the West against striking Syria.

I've honestly lost count how many times those in Syria have suffered a chemical attack since the war against Assad began years again. Syria and and Russian Federation both signed the Chemical Weapons Convention of 1993, a treaty that outlawed countries from producing, holding, and using chemical weapons. USA lawmakers questioned whether Trump has the legal authority to order strikes without Congressional approval and opposition parties voiced concern.
