Russia says West only interested in overthrowing Assad

Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Donald Cook transits the Atlantic Ocean

But Nebenzia said the goal was to oust President Bashar al-Assad from power.

During a week of tense sabre-rattling, Russian officials periodically warned the U.S. that a military response may spiral out of control to war. The ministry also pointed at previous use of chemicals by the rebels in fighting with Syrian government troops.

US Ambassador Nikki Haley said no decision had been taken on military action and stressed the importance of carefully assessing all the implications.

The Russia-U.S. military contacts on Syria are not enough to meet the needs of dialogue, and the two countries should use diplomatic methods rather than threats when communicating with each other, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Friday.

"The mission of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) has set off to Syria not so quickly and without abundant enthusiasm but under our and Syrian pressure".

Western leaders have been planning a response to Saturday's suspected chemical attack. Russia views the military strikes against Syria as an act of aggression and a declaration of war on a sovereign state, Sherin said, according to Russian news agency Sputnik.

The Violations Documentation Centre, which records alleged violations of global law in Syria, said bodies were found with foam at the mouth, discoloured skin and burns to the eyes.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has accused the government of "waiting for instructions" from President Trump and said military action was unlikely to solve the situation in Syria. "It will just take more lives and spawn the war elsewhere".

France said Thursday it has proof that Syrian government forces, which Russian Federation has pledged to protect, conducted the attack.

At the meeting, the fifth in a week on chemical weapons in Syria, Russia and its supporters again clashed with the U.S. and its allies over a suspected poison gas attack on April 7 in the Damascus suburb of Douma.

"And what's most important is no one contests that the use of chemical weapons can not be tolerated and must be deterred, " he said.

In a televised statement Saturday, UK Prime Minister Theresa May said UK forces had undertaken a "limited and targeted strike" and that there had been "no practicable alternative to the use of force to degrade and deter the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime". "Could be very soon or not so soon at all!" "I can't go beyond that", Sanders told reporters.

He called on Moscow to change course and join the West in seeking a more responsible regime in Damascus. She also told Russian Federation if it had done its job then Assad wouldn't have these weapons. Konashenkov released statements by medics from Douma's hospital, who said a group of people toting video cameras entered the hospital, shouting that its patients were struck with chemical weapons, dousing them with water and causing panic. But the administration appeared determined to deliver on the president's threat to punish the use of poison gas.
