Haley slams Russia over Syria chemical attack

Russian Federation on Saturday called for an emergency meeting of the United Nations Security Council as Moscow said it would consider supplying S-300 missile systems to Syria following US -led strikes.

Damascus skies erupt with service to air missile fire as the U.S. launches an attack on Syria early Saturday, April 14, 2018. "Russian Federation will demand a meeting of the UN Security Council, I think, for sure", Vladimir Dzhabarov, who is the deputy head of Russia's foreign affairs committee, was quoted by RIA newsagency as saying.

Russia's ambassador to the USA warned that there would be consequences for the attacks early on Saturday, which came in response to a suspected chemical weapons attack in the former rebel stronghold of Douma last weekend. Some Russian statements indicated that the Syrian events were a false flag and might have been done as a pretext to attack Syria.

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

Russia's foreign ministry said that Western strikes on Syria came as the country had "a chance of a peaceful future".

U.S. President Donald Trump addressed the nation on late Friday, saying the joint operation was in response to the "chemical attack" in Douma, a town in Syria, by the Syrian Government on April 7.

"The insult of the Russian president is unacceptable: the USA - the owner of the largest arsenal of chemical weapons - has no moral right to blame other countries", the diplomat concluded.

Moscow also said it was calling an emergency session of the United Nations Security Council, where it is a permanent member, to discuss the "aggressive actions" of the USA and its allies.

The U.S., the possessor of the biggest arsenal of chemical weapons, has no moral right to blame other countries.
