Russia: Syria chemical attack 'fabrication' by foreign intelligence agency

Ministers are set to meet on Monday to discuss Syria amid the prospect of Western military action in response to the suspected use of chemical weapons.

That's despite the World Health Organisation stating an estimated 500 people presented at medical facilities with the effects of chemical weapons in the area, according to local agencies.

"Again, we are being threatened", Russia's ambassador to the US, Anatoly Antonov, said in a statement.

Speaking to reporters in Moscow, Lavrov reiterated a strong warning to the West against military action in Syria.

In his primetime address announcing the strikes, Trump accused Russian President Vladimir Putin and his government of failing to guarantee a 2013 deal that was supposed to rid Assad of his chemical weapons.

Konstantin Kosachyov, chairman of the worldwide affairs committee in the upper house of Parliament, said the strikes appeared to have been aimed at preventing an investigation of the alleged chemical-weapons attack that Washington cited as the justification. Another official said Bolton did not advocate for any particular position beyond agreeing that the United States should retaliate for the attack if it was clear what chemicals had been used and who used them.

Speaking about the Skripal poisoning and looming decision over air strikes against the Syrian government, he accused humanitarian groups of staging the chemical attack and blasted the United Kingdom for a lack of "transparency" during the Salisbury investigation.

Russia's UN Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia insisted that there was "no credible confirmation of toxic substance use in Douma", adding that "we have information to believe that what took place is a provocation with the participation of certain countries' intelligence services".

In a statement, Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said Australia supported the strikes, which sent "an unequivocal message to the Assad regime and its backers, Russian Federation and Iran, that the use of chemical weapons will not be tolerated".

Bolton has called the Syrian civil war a "sideshow" and said he is much more concerned about Iran's role there than about whether Assad remains in power. They are expected to arrive on Saturday.

"The sole thing that they have an interest in is to oust the Syrian government and to deter, contain the Russian Federation", he added.

The council failed on Tuesday to approve three draft resolutions on chemical weapons attacks in Syria. Mattis said no additional attacks were planned, though Trump earlier suggested the strikes could last longer. The government, however, said evacuations from Douma were ongoing and no Syrian government forces had entered the town.
