Putin: Further Syria strikes to cause chaos in global ties

April 15 23:00 2018

Meanwhile, Mr Rouhani accused the U.S. “and some Western countries” of not wanting Syria “to reach permanent stability”. German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier warned against demonising Russia and said the air strikes raised the risk of a direct confrontation between U.S. and Russian forces in Syria for the first time.

The leaders of Russia, Iran and the Hezbollah group in Lebanon said Sunday that Western airstrikes on their ally, Syria, have complicated prospects for a political settlement to the country’s seven-year conflict.

Vladimir Putin, in particular, stressed that if such actions committed in violation of the UN Charter continue, then it will inevitably lead to chaos in global relations”, a Kremlin statement said.

“Many were excited there is finally something happening, that the (Syrian President Bashar) Assad regime will see some consequences, but other people were quite anxious about civilian casualties, further destruction of Syria”, Khatib said. Russian Federation has vetoed at least six resolutions in the United Nations Security Council regarding chemical weapons. In April 2017, the USA struck an airbase in Syria using cruise missiles.

“I can really confirm that the sanctions are to be imposed on Russia without any link to reality”, she said on Russian television.

The West has accused Syria of failing to live up to its commitment to scrap its chemical weapons programme under a deal reached between the United States and Russian Federation.

“We will defend the rights of his people even if he won’t do it himself”. Moscow condemned the Western states for refusing to wait for their findings before attacking.

Meanwhile, Russia’s defense ministry said Saturday the Western strikes claimed no victims among Syrian civilians or military.

The UK has begun air strikes against Syrian chemical weapons sites. If the strikes were meant to deter Assad from using chemical weapons again, then they would have been more widespread, targeting a far greater number of chemical and military installations, and without the substantial warning that was given.

“This is not about regime change”.

Haley said President Donald Trump is prepared to strike Syria again if that happens, though she declined to say how the United States would respond to the use of conventional weapons.

And so our goal is that yes, we will be at the talks as we have been related to the Geneva process.

“We are going to watch out for the best interests of the American people”, she said.

But, he also says the Trump administration doesn’t have a clear strategy in dealing with the Middle Eastern country.

Haley said the U.S response, carried out in conjunction with British and French forces early Saturday morning, went directly after Syria’s chemical weapons infrastructure, setting the program back “years”. Corbyn said. “The legal basis. would have to be self defense or the authority of the UN Security Council. They are crimes of a monster instead”, Trump said.

The Syrian government and its allies have called the missile strikes an act of aggression.

Syria released video of the wreckage of a bombed-out research lab, while there were no immediate reports of casualties. “And we were able to repel it with Soviet missiles from the 70s”, Russian lawmaker Dmitry Sablin quoted Assad as saying, TASS reported. Yet he made no mention of a possible Russian military response.

Negotiations on the draft resolution put forward by the US, France and Britain are set to begin today.

But until this weekend, they have refrained from targeting Assad’s government, apart from a volley of United States missiles a year ago. “This aggression will only make Syria and its people more determined to keep fighting and crushing terrorism in every inch of the country”, he said.
