Security Council deadlocks as soon as extra on Syria chemical assaults

Russia rejected US proposal at UN to set up an investigation to identify perpetrators gas attack

Moscow and Washington halted attempts by each other in the UN Security Council to set up worldwide investigations into chemical weapons attacks in Syria, which is in the throes of a seven-year-old civil war. The U.S., Britain and France opposed the measure, saying that the investigators are already headed there and that the textual content material didn't embrace a model new choice to assess blame for chemical assaults.

The US maintained the threat of missile strikes on Wednesday in response to alleged chemical attacks in Syria, despite the risk of triggering a head-on clash with Damascus ally Russian Federation.

As tensions escalate over possible US -led military reprisals for the suspected attack, the U.N.'s most powerful body remained paralyzed, unable to overcome its deep divisions that have been a hallmark of its debates during the seven years of conflict in Syria.

The White House said that, in a telephone call, Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May "agreed not to allow the use of chemical weapons to continue".

Bolivia has asked for the United Nations Security Council to meet on Thursday "on the escalation of rhetoric regarding Syria and these threats of unilateral military action", hours after US President Donald Trump warned of missile attacks.

Haley dismissed the Russian draft as "all about protecting the Assad regime" because of provisions that would have required the Security Council to endorse its findings - in other words, giving Russia a veto over any attempt to apportion blame.

The vote was 12 in favor, with Bolivia joining Russian Federation in voting "no" and China abstaining.

He said in a speech in parliament that the use of chemical weapons is a violation of global law and accused the regime led by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Russian UN ambassador Vassily Nebenzia said Washington's decision to put forward its resolution could be a prelude to a Western strike on Syria.

European governments said they will wait for the results of the OPCW investigation and for more solid forensic evidence before taking the next step on the matter.

He said that Russian Federation has 'the necessary means for that and the Americans and their allies know that quite well'.

British Prime Minister Theresa May says "all the indications" are that Syrian forces were behind a chemical attack in the town of Douma, and insists that the "continued use of chemical weapons can not go unchallenged".

Russia's United Nations ambassador Vassily Nebenzia accused the USA of wanting the resolution to fail "to justify the use of force against Syria".

The OPCW said it would "shortly" deploy a fact-finding team to Douma for an investigation, but U.S. officials said they were working from their own information and would not necessarily hold back.

The Syrian government says US threats to attack it are "reckless" and endanger global peace and security.

The workers moreover accused the Islamic State extremist group of using mustard gasoline twice in 2015 and 2016.

Moscow's United Nations ambassador Vassily Nebenzia accused Haley of seeking a vote to provide cover for a Western military strike on Assad, which now seems all the more likely.

Nebenzia knowledgeable the council Tuesday the US choice was trying to recreate the JIM, which he talked about "grew to develop into a puppet inside the arms of anti-Damascus forces".
