France has not declared war on Syria regime: Macron

And now, French President Emmanuel Macron claims that he has convinced Trump to commit US forces to stay in Syria for a while after all.

"Ten days ago, President Trump wanted to withdraw from Syria".

"The U.S. mission has not changed - the president has been clear that he wants U.S. forces to come home as quickly as possible", White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said in a statement.

She added that the United States still wants to "crush ISIS" and expects regional allies to help securing the region.

Insisting that the strikes were legitimate, Macron hailed the operation targeting Syrian chemical weapons facilities as a military success.

"It's the condition to have peace", Macron told news channel BFM TV, RMC radio and Mediapart online news on Sunday, Xinhua reported.

"It was retaliation, not an act of war", Macron said in justifying the operation a day before the French parliament was set to debate it.

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said no further strikes were planned, but that this would be reassessed if more chemical attacks took place.

Speaking to U.S. media, Ms Haley defended the air strikes, warning that if action had not been taken, the United States could also become a target of chemical attacks.

Macron invited Trump to assist to Bastille day celebrations previous year and will travel to Washington on a state visit later this month.

Many leaders around the globe also voiced support and understanding for the airstrikes against Syria, but warned against allowing the seven-year conflict to escalate. We will try to make it better. "The EU will stand with our allies on the side of justice", European Council President Donald Tusk tweeted.

Three sites. Firstly, the Barzeh complex, which the U.S. says is a centre for development, production and testing of chemical and biological weapons, although Syria denies this.

The NATO alliance gave its full backing; NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said the attack was about ensuring that chemical weapons can not be used with impunity.

Russian Federation says the attack in Douma was staged, accusing the United Kingdom of orchestrating it. According to Damascus, which has repeatedly said it had eliminated its chemical weapons stockpiles, the attack damaged Syrian infrastructure and left three civilians injured.

"We support the fact that our U.S., United Kingdom and French allies took on responsibility in this way as permanent members of the U.N. Security Council.

They have not used chlorine themselves but they have methodically built the worldwide community's inability to act through diplomatic channels to stop the use of chemical weapons", he said of Russian Federation.

"We're not going to leave until we know we've accomplished those things", she said.

The inspectors will investigate the site of the alleged chemical attack in Douma, which the Western allies believe killed dozens of people with the use of chlorine gas and possibly Sarin.
