Russian Federation calls an emergency session to discuss strikes on Syria

Russia: Syria chemical attack 'fabrication' by foreign intelligence agency

"Vladimir Putin, in particular, stressed that if such actions committed in violation of the UN Charter continue, then it will inevitably lead to chaos in worldwide relations", the Kremlin statement said.

"This is grotesque", Pierce said of the Russian statement as she left an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council called by Russia on United States threatened military action in response to the alleged attack.

By contrast, eight countries voted against the Russian draft - the U.S., U.K., France, Netherlands, Sweden, Kuwait, Poland and Ivory Coast.

Those current members are Bolivia, Côte d'Ivoire, Equatorial Guinea, Ethiopia, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Netherlands, Peru, Poland, and Sweden.

Russian Federation has warned the United States that launching air strikes in response to a suspected chemical attack in Syria could spark a war between the two countries.

The overnight strikes hit three sites - one in Damascus and two in Homs - which US President Donald Trump said were "associated with the chemical weapon capabilities of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad".

Russia's foreign minister says Moscow has received a document from a Swiss lab that analyzed the samples in the nerve agent poisoning of an ex-Russian spy, which points at a Western-designed nerve agent as a likely cause.

"In fact, it takes a very peculiar kind of uniqueness to attack Syria's capital at a time when the country has received a change for peace at last", Zaharova said, according to Russia's TASS news agency.

"When our president draws a red line, our president enforces the red line", Haley stressed. It's not known when the resolution would be put to a vote.

Meanwhile, the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) says experts are travelling to Syria and will start investigations on Saturday.

Russia's U.N. Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia said the meeting confirmed that the USA and its allies "continue to put global politics and diplomacy in the realm of myth-making - myths invented in London, Paris and Washington". The Kremlin said both Putin and Macron lauded the upcoming visit of the worldwide chemical watchdog's fact-finding mission to Syria and pledged to join efforts to provide necessary assistance to that mission. "If we continue on this path, we will soon reach the diplomacy of the absurd". Russia, a key ally of the Assad government, is calling for an immediate UN Security Council meeting, he said.

The action followed a week of threats of retaliation for a suspected chemical weapons attack on civilians in Douma, outside Damascus, where Syrian forces have always been battling rebels.

Britain's ambassador to the United Nations, Karen Pierce, dismissed Konashenkov's claim as "a blatant lie". Russian Federation also calls it "fabricated".

"I would like to believe that we will not see a day that is worse than today", he said. It was unlikely to get the minimum nine votes needed to force a veto by the United States, France or Britain, said diplomats.

Russia's foreign minister has asserted that a suspected chemical attack in the Syrian town of Douma last weekend was fabricated with the help of an unspecified foreign intelligence agency.

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

"Again, we are being threatened".

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres told the Security Council on Friday (Saturday NZT) that "there is no military solution to the conflict".
