United States says Russian Federation 'may have tampered' with attack site in Syria

United States says Russian Federation 'may have tampered' with attack site in Syria

The US also targeted 12 companies operated by the sanctioned oligarchs; Rosoboroneksport, a state-owned weapons manufacturer known to have transported arms to the Syrian regime; and Rosoboroneksport's subsidiary, the Russian Financial Corporation Bank.

Moscow immediately denied the charge and blamed delays on retaliatory USA -led missile strikes on Syria at the weekend.

Speaking ahead of the PM's statement to the House of Commons, her official spokesman said "early indications are that the action which was carried out has been a success and there has been strong worldwide backing from our allies". "Russia and Syria must co-operate".

The Russians say 71 missiles were shot down by Syrian systems.

Russian Federation has denied interfering with evidence at the site of the suspected Syrian chemical attack, which led to Western air strikes on Saturday.

The French president gave a wide-ranging TV interview on Sunday night saying he had persuaded US President Donald Trump not to pull troops out of Syria and instead commit "for the long term".

A Washington Post report suggested Trump had been furious with aides over the recent decision to expel 60 Russian diplomats, believing each European country - rather than Europe as a whole - would match that figure. State aid trucks handed out bread, rice and pasta to people who had lived under siege for years.

The other two were suspected chemical weapons facilities at Him Shinshar near Homs.

On CBS's "Face the Nation", Haley said the Treasury Department will announce the new sanctions and insisted the U.S. has sent "a strong message" about the use of chemical weapons.

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson made this clear on Monday as he arrived at a meeting of European Union foreign ministers in Luxembourg, telling reporters: "I'm afraid the Syrian war will go on in its awful, miserable way".

Nebenzia responded saying the environment is "not very conducive for any rapprochement" and "the political and unsafe military situation we are in now" must be sorted out first.

The 28 ministers endorsed the missile strikes and considered steps to deepen Assad's isolation.

"Ten days ago, President Trump was saying the United States of America had a duty to disengage from Syria", Macron said during a two-hour grilling on French television, broadcast days after his government joined the USA and Britain in launching strikes against alleged Syrian regime chemical weapons facilities.

Lt. Gen. Kenneth F. McKenzie, director of the Joint Staff, said, "I think the words crippled and degraded are good words".

"Everyone is going to feel it at this point", Ms Haley said, warning of consequences for Assad's foreign allies.

The allies could not wait "to alleviate further humanitarian suffering caused by chemical weapons attacks", according to excerpts of her speech.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, writing in The Guardian, said: "The military action at the weekend was legally questionable".

"But it was the world saying that we have had enough of the use of chemical weapons, the erosion of that taboo that has been in place for 100 years has gone too far under Bashar Assad", he said.

In France, the conservatives, the far-left and the far-right have all criticised the strikes. The French Constitution bars presidents from going to parliament and President Emmanuel Macron will therefore not be questioned by law-makers.
