United States allies warn of action on suspected Syria chemical attack

United States allies warn of action on suspected Syria chemical attack

Russian Federation was a guarantor of a deal the Obama administration struck in 2013 in which Syria was to have removed all of its chemical weapons.

"You don't want to hear that no signs of a chemical attack have been found in Douma".

In a bid to head off Western military strikes, Syria's Foreign Ministry said on April 10 that it had invited the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) to visit the site of the alleged attack.

A senior Russian lawmaker says that a USA strike on Syria could trigger a direct military clash between Russia and the United States.

"The chemical weapons attack that took place on Saturday in Douma in Syria was a shocking and barbaric act", May told reporters in the central English city of Birmingham.

Also, U.S. President Donald Trump also struck a warmongering tone when he said on Monday that "major decisions" on Syria will be made within the next 48 hours, with U.S. officials not shunning aside the military action.

Carleigh Weldon was one of the survivors of that crash, and she admits the tragedy in Saskatchewan has been hard to comprehend. Brons, who was from Lake Lenore, Sask., is the 16th of the 29 people to die as a result of the crash.

Later on Tuesday, the UN Security Council will vote on competing U.S. and Russian draft resolutions on the Syria incident.

Russian Federation has blocked calls by the United Nations Security Council for an global inquiry into the Syria chemical attack, calling the attack "fake news".

It would be hard for the administration to justify a military strike while OPCW investigators are on the ground collecting evidence for analysis.

Mr Trump has pledged a "forceful" response, and has spoken of numerous military options.

It's unclear if there's an appetite for broader sanctions against Venezuela, but the region did take the extraordinary step of rescinding President Nicolás Maduro's invitation to this year's event. UK Prime Minister Theresa May spoke to President Trump and President Macron of France in separate calls on Tuesday.

"I reiterate my strong condemnation of the use of chemical weapons against the civilian population".

Tests showed no sign of stroke or any other deadly headache causes, and the man's blood pressure was normal. A few days earlier, he had eaten a Carolina Reaper chilli during a hot pepper eating contest.

The crisis comes as an investigation into Trump's 2016 presidential campaign metastasizes to envelop his personal lawyer, whose office and hotel room were raided by FBI agents on Monday.

The US and France have not released evidence to support their assessments of the alleged attack.

"Whenever we propose anything meaningful on Syria, Russia vetoes it".

The Syrian American Medical Society described patients foaming at the mouth and warned that victims had suffered corneal burns and smelled of a "chlorine-like odour".

The strike on one of the last rebel-held areas around the Syrian capital of Damascus reportedly killed at least 40 people, including a number of women and children.
