'Consequences' for Syria strike: Russian Federation

Eight countries voted against the Russian-drafted text on Saturday, while Peru, Kazakhstan, Ethiopia and Equatorial Guinea abstained.

"The US - the possessor of the biggest arsenal of chemical weapons - has no moral right to blame other countries".

Late Friday night, the U.S. President Donald Trump announced that the U.S., United Kingdom and France jointly launched strikes targeting the Assad regime's chemical weapons capabilities after a suspected chemical attack killed dozens outside of Damascus. Russian Federation and its ally Syria called the attack fabricated and said no evidence of chemical weapons use exists in Douma. "We are prepared to sustain this pressure, if the Syrian regime is foolish enough to test our will", U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said.

"When our president draws a red line, our president enforces the red line", Haley stressed.

She said "the United States estimates that (President Bashar) Assad has used chemical weapons in the Syrian war at least 50 times".

France's U.N. Ambassador Francois Delattre said the result of the vote sends "a clear message" that Security Council members recognized the need for the airstrikes, and "their proportional and targeted nature".

The 2 men are said to have denied the use of chemical weapons, saying no one was showing symptoms of poisoning. "Russian Federation will demand a meeting of the U.N. Security Council, I think, for sure", Dzhabarov, who is the deputy head of Russia's foreign affairs committee, was quoted by RIA as saying.

Swansea v Everton: Defences to come out on top

The council failed on Tuesday to approve three draft resolutions on chemical weapons attacks in Syria.

Meanwhile, the Defense Ministry in a statement said Russian military bases in Syria had not been affected by the joint strike.

Russia's Nebenzia called it "a very sad day for the world, for the United Nations, for its Charter which was blatantly, blatantly violated, and for the Security Council which has shirked its responsibilities". He accused the United States, France and Britain of "demonstrating a blatant disregard for worldwide law".

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

"Again, we are being threatened".

During an address to the Security Council, U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres urged all states "to show restraint in these unsafe circumstances and to avoid any acts that could escalate matters and worsen the suffering of the Syrian people".
