Russian Federation not tampering with Syria attack site

Russian Federation not tampering with Syria attack site

"We are considering additional sanctions on Russian Federation and a decision will be made in the near future", White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said in a statement on Monday.

Moscow denied the charge and blamed delays on retaliatory USA -led missile strikes on Syria at the weekend.

Moscow and Damascus are waging the same "battles" against terrorism and "to protect global law based on respect of the sovereignty of countries and the wills of people", Assad said in comments carried by state media, an apparent jab at the three Western allies. European Union foreign ministers threatened similar measures. The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Theresa may has received the information from intelligence.

Anti-aircraft fire is seen over Damascus, Syria early April 14, 2018.

Witnesses and Western governments say helicopters dropped chemical bombs that killed many children and women hiding in cellars from bombardment. Footage of young victims foaming at the mouth and weeping in agony has thrust Syria's civil war - in which half a million people have been killed in the past seven years - to the forefront of world concern again.

Syrian state media said the attack also struck a scientific research facility in Damascus, which the Pentagon said was used to develop, produce and test chemical and biological weapons.

Trump said he was prepared to sustain the response until Assad's government stopped its use of chemical weapons. His comments at the closed-door meeting were obtained by Reuters.

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said Moscow would not delay its response to new USA sanctions.

In an interview published Sunday in the Journal du Dimanche newspaper, French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said Moscow "should join our efforts to promote a political process in Syria that would allow a way out of the crisis".

Pattali Makkal Katchi's (PMK) Anbumani Ramadoss demanded a CBI probe to help unearth the top officials behind the matter. Nirmala Devi seeks an assurance from them that they will not reveal about the conversation to anyone.

With an announcement seemingly imminent, officials at the Departments of State and Treasury referred queries back to the White House, while others indicated a Monday announcement was now unlikely.

Haley indicated that the military action came after an impasse at the Security Council.

Earlier, Britain's delegation to the OPCW accused Russian Federation and the Syrian government of preventing the worldwide watchdog's inspectors from reaching Douma.

"Unfettered access (is) essential", the statement said.

According to Hamilton 68, a website set up by researchers working with the Alliance for Securing Democracy, a transatlantic project set up to counter Russian disinformation campaigns - Syria is the leading hashtag on social media accounts identified as part of Russia-linked influence networks.

The team aims to collect samples, interview witnesses and document evidence to determine whether banned toxic munitions were used, although it is not permitted to assign blame for the attack.

The OPCW previously said that "Syria and Russian Federation were concerned that security on the ground could not be guaranteed" for its team, but Lavrov echoed the Kremlin's prior "fabrication" claims outright.

In the absence of a permanent secretary of state, Haley has been the face of American diplomacy, playing an especially prominent role over the past week as the Trump administration responded to the attack in Syria.

"We called for an objective investigation".
