Global 'chaos' if Syria hit again: Putin

Russian President Vladimir Putin said the military strikes violated the U.N. Charter and that if they continue, "it will inevitably entail chaos in worldwide relations", according to a Kremlin statement Sunday.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has told Iranian President Hassan Rouhani that further attacks by Western allies in Syria would inevitably lead to chaos in worldwide relations.

A Kremlin statement said Mr Putin and his Iranian counterpart, Hassan Rouhani, agreed during a telephone conversation that the air strikes had damaged the chances of achieving a political resolution of the conflict in Syria.

With President Donald Trump declaring "mission accomplished" after allied airstrikes against Syria in retaliation for its use of chemical weapons, U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley on Sunday said the president was referring only to the narrow task on Friday.

The Pentagon said no further action was planned but Washington's envoy to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, warned that the USA was "locked and loaded" should another gas attack occur.

The chemical attack which has so far been denied by the Russian-backed Bashar al-Assad regime has sparked worldwide condemnation and calls for military intervention.

The White House is weighing new sanctions against Russian Federation "in the near future" over Moscow's support for Syria's suspected chemical attack on a Damascus suburb that activists claim killed at least 40 people.

It's the second time Trump has authorized bombing targets in Syria after a chemical attack.

The allegations of the US and other countries that the Syrian army is using chemical weapons and that Syria is a country that owns and uses this kind of weapon, is a claim that is unjustified and unsupported by sufficient and clear evidence.

The U.S. -led strikes did nothing to alter the strategic balance or dent Assad's supremacy and the Western allies have said the aim was to prevent the further use of chemical weapons, not to intervene in the civil war or topple Assad.

But the United States envoy to the global watchdog said on Monday Russia may have tampered with the site of the incident on April 7 in Douma outside of Damascus.

"The global community will not allow chemical weapons to come back into our everyday life", she said.

Trump's remarks on Twitter are reminiscent of President George W. Bush's 2003 speech announcing an end to major combat operations in Iraq on the on the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln, with a big sign that read, "Mission Accomplished" in the backdrop.

A team of chemical experts from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, based in The Hague, Netherlands, arrived in Damascus hours after the strikes.

The strikes have ratcheted up worldwide tension, as the USA and Russian Federation exchanged threats of retaliation. "We know that it is now up to Bashar al-Assad on whether he's going to use chemical weapons again".

Trump, French President Emmanuel Macron and U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May released statements after the attack had begun, saying the missile strikes were focused on chemical weapons sites.

"More bombings and the continued presence of 2,000 US troops in northeast Syria. would undoubtedly prolong the war and the suffering of Syria's people", Glass told USA TODAY. The Pentagon says no missiles were engaged.

In remarks that could indicate an attempt to bog down the OPCW team, Russia's deputy foreign minister, Sergei Ryabkov, said the inspectors will not be allowed to access the site until they produce an appropriate United Nations permit.

She said Russian Federation had blocked six attempts by the UN Security Council to make it easier to investigate the use of chemical weapons.
