Russia rebukes US missile strike on Syria

Russia rebukes US missile strike on Syria

The sanctions follow US -led airstrikes against Syria's chemical weapons capability and President Trump's promise that Assad and his allies, namely Moscow, would pay a "big price" for enabling the use of chemical weapons.

"Russia has never supplied any dual-use technologies, these U.S. statements are another fake and deception", Serebrennikov said.

Russia, that's an element of this P5 - the five permanent members of this U.N. Security Council - partnered with the U.S.at 2013, if the USA was conducting airstrikes on Syria, in an arrangement which called for Syria's chemical weapons stash to get eliminated by the center of 2014.

U.S. Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, said on ABC's This Week that while the airstrikes on Syria were proportional and justifiable, they don't "solve the problem that we do not have an overall comprehensive strategy for dealing with Syria".

Moscow brokered that agreement to forestall USA strikes in retaliation for an August 2013 chemical-weapons attack in a Damascus suburb that killed hundreds.

The United States, the United Kingdom, and France conducted air strikes against Syria on April 14 in response to a suspected chemical attack by the Syrian government that killed dozens of people last week.

President Macron said France wanted to involve Western powers, Russian Federation and Turkey in a new diplomatic initiative to find a sustainable political solution in Syria.

Russian President Vladimir Putin warned Sunday that further Western attacks on Syria would bring chaos to world affairs, as Washington prepared to increase pressure on Russia with new economic sanctions.

In an indication that the West, too, would prefer to lower tensions, the United States and Britain both reiterated that their military action on Saturday was not aimed at Assad, Putin's ally, only at his use of chemical weapons.

United States' ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley on Sunday said that her country would announce more sanctions against Russian Federation on Monday.

Frank Benzimra, head of global markets for Asia Pacific at Societe Generale Corporate and Investment Banking, said stocks would plunge only in case of new strikes by Western powers.

President Donald Trump erupted in anger when he learned the USA was expelling 60 Russian diplomats in March, while France and Germany were only expelling four each, the Washington Post reported late Sunday.

The night time assault on Syria was carefully limited to minimise civilian casualties and avoid direct conflict with Russian Federation, but confusion arose over the extent to which Washington warned Moscow in advance. What happens next, she said, is up to Assad and his Russian and Iranian allies.

Following up on President Donald Trump's threat, the United States - along with allies Britain and France - rained cruise missiles at three locations in Syria on Saturday, the biggest strike by the West in the seven years of the war in Syria.

Asked about Trump's "Mission Accomplished" assertion, White said it pointed to the successful targeting of the three Syrian chemical weapons sites.

Although officials said the singular target was Assad's chemical weapons capability, his air force, including helicopters he allegedly has used to drop chemical weapons on civilians, were spared.
