Strikes on Syria did not hit areas near Russian bases: Moscow

Strikes on Syria did not hit areas near Russian bases: Moscow

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

Reports quoted White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders as saying that "all options are on the table".

"Syria indeed today represents the most serious threat to global peace and security", Guterres said.

Russia's UN Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia insisted that there was "no credible confirmation of toxic substance use in Douma", adding that "we have information to believe that what took place is a provocation with the participation of certain countries' intelligence services".

Russia's military head has warned that Moscow will target United States sites if the latter puts the former's personnel at risk.

Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said the Kremlin will analyze the bill, but no decision has been made yet. It "could be very soon or not so soon at all", he said. "Where is our 'Thank you America?'"

During his address, President Trump said U.S. forces were prepared to sustain this response "until the Syrian regime stops its use of prohibited chemical agents" and issued a direct message to Russian Federation and Iran which he said are "most responsible for supporting, equipping, and financing the criminal Assad regime".

Russia's denial of the attack comes as Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, is set to study the area for evidence.

The strikes have come after a week-long worldwide push to punish the Assad regime after images and videos emerged on April 7 suggesting civilians - including children - had suffered a chemical attack in Douma.

France's President Emmanuel Macron told reporters that his soldiers will target Syrian chemical factories. In a reference to the USA, he said that "it would only benefit those who are protected by the ocean and expect to sit there and engage in continuous efforts to stir up the region in order to advance their geopolitical goals".

"We do not consider this barbaric act by the United States and its satellites a military action. We warned that such actions will not be left without consequences", he said.

Russia's ambassador to Lebanon on Tuesday told Lebanon's Al Manar TV that any US missiles fired at Syria would be shot down and the launch sites targeted, Reuters reported. Get ready Russian Federation, because they will be coming, nice and new and "smart!"

Communication on the line is a near-daily occurrence created to stop mishaps as a US-led coalition conducts an air war against the Islamic State group while Russian Federation pursues its own goals of propping up Assad.

Unlike his father's conservative approach, Prince Salman, also known as MBS, has been open about reforms.

Last month, the USA government expelled 60 Russian diplomats in response to the alleged attempted assassination of a former Russian spy and his daughter in Britain.

Russian Federation retaliated, expelling the same number of USA diplomats from the country.
