"Did a chemical weapons attack happen?"
U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres told the Security Council Friday that "there is no military solution to the conflict".
A joint military operation, possibly with France rather than the U.S.in the lead, could send a message of worldwide unity about enforcing the prohibitions on chemical weapons and counter Syria's political and military support from Russian Federation and Iran.
President Trump has sent mixed messages on the USA response, warning Russian Federation in a tweet Wednesday to "get ready" for US missile strikes in Syria in retaliation for the attack.
"It will be in defense of a bedrock worldwide norm that benefits all nations", Haley said.
With tensions growing, however, European air traffic control agency Eurocontrol warned airlines to exercise caution in the eastern Mediterranean due to the possible launch of air strikes into Syria over the next 72 hours.
"You don't rush decisions like this", Haley told reporters, adding that if there is haste "you make a mistake".
Davis explained that Putin would say, "We're going to keep this quiet, and we're going to calm things down", but in the meanwhile, "he will stab someone in the back". The Kremlin said a crisis communications link with the United States, created to avoid an accidental clash over Syria, was in use.
"All responsibility for them rests with Washington, London and Paris". The speed, scale and sophistication of Russia's asymmetric attacks were unlike anything I had seen before.
The Prime Minster, who has spoken with Mr Trump about Syria, won the backing of her ministers to deploy British forces against Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad's regime.
The draft would also give council support to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons' fact-finding mission that Sweden's U.N. Ambassador Olof Skoog said "is on its way" to Syria to determine whether chemical weapons were used in the Damascus suburb of Douma last weekend. "This is not a threat". The exchange follows the poisoning of a former Russian spy in Britain, and comes amid Moscow's stern warnings to the West against striking Syria.
"I don't think we're at the Cuban missile crisis level, but we're getting pretty damn close", Russian Federation expert Boris Zilberman of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies told AFP.
He did not say what the evidence was.
President Donald Trump, who announced the airstrikes Friday night, said the operation was "perfectly executed" and "could not have had a better result". The US and its allies, Nebenzia alleged, are setting the stage to "unleash a military scenario against Syria".
"This is grotesque, it is a blatant lie, it is the worst piece of fake news we've yet seen from the Russian propaganda machine", said Britain's United Nations ambassador Karen Pierce. "There is no reason for this", Trump said.
Trump's handling of the American response to the April 7 chemical attack blamed on the Assad regime is emerging as a test of his self-portrayal as a more decisive commander-in-chief than his predecessors.
Biological samples from the area of the attack in Syria have tested positive for chlorine and a sarin-like nerve agent, according to a United States official who's familiar with the USA analysis of the test results.
McKenzie described one site, the Barzah Research and Development Center, near Damascus, as a "core" facility for Syria's chemical weapons program. "We used the normal deconfliction channel to deconflict airspace. Russian Federation will demand a meeting of the UN Security Council, I think, for sure", Dzhabarov, who is the deputy head of Russia's foreign affairs committee, was quoted by RIA as saying.
"Syria indeed today represents the most serious threat to global peace and security", Guterres said.
