Haley slams Russian Federation over Syria chemical attack

A new war against Syria would have negative consequences, especially because it would end the little confidence we have left over the acts of the West, Lavrov told the British public radio and television network BBC.

Guterres said "the Cold War is back - with a vengeance but with a difference", because safeguards that managed the risk of escalation in the past "no longer seem to be present".

President Vladimir Putin later referred to this claim, saying on April 4 that Russian Federation had "irrefutable proof" that opposition fighters were planning an attack with "poisonous substances".

President Vladimir Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov said the claims were "groundless" and that Moscow was in favour of "an impartial investigation" into the attack.

"We did not coordinate targets or any planning with the Russians", Dunford said later, speaking at a press briefing alongside Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis.

President Bashar al-Assad's government - which receives military backing from Russian Federation - has denied involvement in any chemical attack, calling the reports "fabricated".

Exchange traded funds with exposure to Russian equities have suffered a significant blow from the fresh sanctions imposed on several Russian enterprises by the USA government earlier in the month.

There was no word from Putin himself, though Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Moscow was in contact with Washington to discuss an atmosphere which he described as alarming.

The air defense forces of Syria and Russian Federation is not impressed, none of the more than 100 shells fired by the U.S., Britain and France on the production facilities of the chemical substances in Syria.

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

The OPCW declared that the Syrian government's chemical weapons stockpile had been removed in 2014, only to confirm later that sarin was used in a 2017 attack in the northern town of Khan Sheikhun.

"The mission of the OPCW has set off to Syria not so quickly and without abundant enthusiasm but under our and Syrian pressure", Lavrov said.

On Friday at 9 p.m. EDT, military forces from the US, UK, and France launched a military campaign in Syria, targeting the country's research facilities that were believed to have been involved in the development of chemical weapons.

The United States and Britain have also blamed Syrian President Bashar Assad's government. "The footage that was shown was clearly staged", he added, according to Bloomberg. It also said Russian officers found no patients with chemical attack symptoms at a local hospital, and no indication of any burials of victims.

Syrian flags flew in Douma on Monday, security forces stood on street corners and Russian military police patrolled the streets.

Inspectors from the aforesaid organization must inspect the area of Duma, in the region of Eastern Ghouta, where the organization White Helmets said that on April 8 there was an attack with chlorine or sarin. The government's capture of Douma, the last town held by the rebels in eastern Ghouta, marked a major victory for Assad.
