New Western Syria strikes would spark 'chaos': Putin tells Rouhani

Assad and Russian Federation deny using chemical weapons, the trigger for the strikes early on Saturday.

"In the United States administration there are specific people who it is possible to talk with", said Mr Ermakov, head of the ministry's department for non-proliferation and arms control.

Foreign Minister Boris Johnson said there were now no plans for further attacks in Syria after Britain and its allies France and the USA launched air strikes on the regime's chemical weapons facilities. "Saying it's been a success - we won't know until we see if the regime continues to use chemical weapons".

Speaking at a briefing late Friday, U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis and the Chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff General Joseph Dunford said the strikes will result in a long term degradation of the Assad regime's capability to develop and deploy chemical and biological weapons.

The inspectors were due to attempt to visit the site of the suspected gas attack in Douma on April 7, which medical relief organisations say killed dozens of people.

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Twitter, "The Syrian raid was so perfectly carried out, with such precision, that the only way the Fake News Media could demean was by my use of the term 'Mission Accomplished.' I knew they would seize on this but felt it is such a great Military term, it should be brought back".

Haley said the USA would not pull its troops out of Syria until its goals were accomplished.

The Syrian Armed Forces later said the US and its Western allies fired a total of one-hundred-and-ten missiles from manned aircraft and ships.

Sanders said the United States and coalition forces "went out to destroy critical chemical weapons infrastructure in Syria, and they did exactly that". The Pentagon confirmed the airstrikes hit three sites: a scientific research facility in the capital, Damascus, and chemical weapons storage facilities, as well as an important command post near Homs.

The Syrian Foreign Ministry Saturday condemned what it called "the brutal American-British-French aggression. which constitutes a flagrant violation of global law".

A year ago, the United States launched missiles on Syria in response to another chemical weapon attack, he noted.

Syria and its ally Russian Federation deny any chemical attack took place - with Russian Federation calling it a "staged thing".

The Russians, however, say 71 missiles were shot down by Syrian systems - many of them older Soviet-era defences.

New Western air strikes in Syria would provoke "chaos" in worldwide relations, Russian President Vladimir Putin told his Iranian counterpart, Hassan Rouhani, on Sunday.
