Russian officials say Assad upbeat after strikes

She will say United Nations inspectors found Syrian president Bashar al-Assad's government responsible for four previous chemical weapons attacks and that she is confident it was "highly likely" to have been behind last week's attack in Douma, which killed up to 75 people.

The meeting followed missile strikes by the United States, France and Britain against Syrian government targets over a suspected poison gas attack a week ago. But he appeared to contradict that message when he said on Saturday that Western allies were prepared to "sustain" the military response if Assad does not stop using prohibited chemical weapons.

"Applaud" Trump for taking military action against the Assad regime for its latest use of chemical weapons, and for signalling his resolve to do so again if these heinous attacks continue, said Senator John McCain, Chairman of the powerful Armed Services Committee.

A team from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons is in Syria to investigate the Douma incident and was expected to visit the town. "Chemical weapons have been prohibited for decades and we must enforce this prohibition". "We know that it is now up to Bashar al-Assad on whether he's going to use chemical weapons again". After meeting with him in Damascus, he revealed what Assad really did following the attack.

While he is a supporter of the Syrian government, Ramli said he would change his mind if concrete evidence were to emerge that Assad were behind the chemical weapons attack.

Asked about the demand for a CBI probe into the incident, the BJP leader said: "It is now for the court to decide". However, there was some amount of indiscretion on the part of the ministers for which they had to resign, he said.

Russian President Vladimir Putin spoke by phone with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, and they agreed the Western airstrikes were an "illegal action. adversely impacting prospects for political settlement in Syria", a Kremlin statement said.

Syria released video of the wreckage of a bombed-out research lab, but also of Assad arriving at work as usual, with the caption "Morning of resilience" and there were no immediate reports of casualties.

U.S. President Donald Trump praised the military strike on Syria as a "perfectly executed" operation and said it was aimed at ending the use of such weapons of mass destruction.

The United States, Britain and France have all participated in the Syrian conflict for years, arming rebels, bombing Islamic State fighters and deploying troops to fight the militants. But they have refrained from targeting Assad's government, apart from a volley of U.S. missiles past year. "And we can not wait to alleviate further humanitarian suffering caused by chemical weapons attacks". As soon as Trump tweeted [his threat] that missiles will fly over to Syria, Prime Minister May responded instantly (we can imagine her clapping her hands and calling her Defence Secretary with relief ) that the British forces were ready to rain Syria with missiles once the Americans took the lead.
