United Nations boss urges restraint after strikes on Syria

United Nations boss urges restraint after strikes on Syria

I reiterate: "there is no military solution to the conflict", he said.

That bid, however, failed, with only China and Bolivia voting alongside Russian Federation to condemn the air strikes. A second is expected to arrive on Friday or Saturday.

The United Nations Security Council on the same day held an emergency meeting over the missile attack at Russia's request but failed to approve a resolution condemning the bombardment.

"I have repeatedly expressed my deep disappointment that the Security Council failed to agree on a dedicated mechanism for effective accountability for the use of chemical weapons in Syria", his statement said.

An investigative team dispatched by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons is scheduled to arrive in Douma on April 14 to document what happened there.

Why is the West considering military action?

As fact and guesswork regarding who is responsible and what, precisely, occurred, are lumped together to justify the punishing predawn missile attack by the United States and its allies on several locations inside Syria, one of the poorest nations in the Middle East again reels as its seven-year war continues, with no end in sight.

Six of those resolutions would have condemned the regime for chemical weapons attacks.

Hours after striking Syria, the United States, France and Britain on Saturday launched a new bid at the United Nations to investigate chemical weapons attacks in Syria.

And US ambassador Nikki Haley, while allowing that Washington is still weighing its options and pursuing its own investigation, warned her colleagues, "At one point, you have to do something".

They agreed to "keep working closely" on the issue, Mrs May's office said in a statement.

Sergey Lavrov says Russian experts have inspected the site of the alleged attack in Douma, just east of Damascus, and found no trace of chemical weapons.

France's foreign minister has cancelled trips to Albania and Slovenia because of rising global tensions around Syria.

On Wednesday he said the missiles were "coming", but on Thursday he tweeted that he had "never said when".

Russian Trolls Increased '2000 Percent' After Syria Attack, Pentagon Says
US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis called the strikes a "one-time shot" with no additional military action planned for now. Fortunately, however, Trump did appear to carefully and smartly avoid attacking Russian forces on the ground in Syria .

"The situation in the world is becoming more and more chaotic but all the same we hope that common sense will finally prevail and worldwide relations will take a constructive path", he said.

He later told reporters at the White House: "We're having a meeting today on Syria".

Israel says its forces have opened fire to stop attempts to harm soldiers, damage the fence, infiltrate Israel and attempt to carry out attacks. "So they'll be made fairly soon".

Mattis added that he also is concerned about "how do we keep this from escalating out of control".

Russian Federation has described the reports of a chemical attack as a "provocation" created to justify Western intervention.

United Nations chief Guterres also observed that the "Cold War is back with a vengeance", cited by The Guardian.

US President Donald Trump said the joint action was meant to establish a "strong deterrent" against the production, spread and use of chemical weapons.

On Friday, Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich criticised Mr Trump's rhetoric.
