"We'll be coming out of Syria, like, very soon", he said.

"We're still assessing the intelligence, ourselves and our allies", Mattis said.

During the two-hour meeting yesterday afternoon, ministers agreed to join forces with the United States and France to prevent Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad's forces from launching an "appalling and inhumane" attack again. "It is to drive this to a United Nations -brokered peace but, at the same time, keep our foot on the neck of ISIS until we suffocate it", referring to the Islamic State extremist group.

Speaking to congress at a hearing of the House Armed Services Committee on Thursday, Mattis said he believed a chemical attack had taken place and blamed Russian Federation for being complicit in Syrian government's possession of chemical weapons.

Later Thursday he was noncommittal. "So they'll be made fairly soon".

"The government appears to be waiting for instructions from President Donald Trump on how to proceed", Corbyn said in a statement. That meant airstrikes, possibly in tandem with France and other allies that have expressed outrage at the alleged Syrian chemical attack, could be launched within hours of a presidential decision.

"France will shoulder its responsibility to end an intolerable threat to our collective security", he said.

The BBC said May was ready to give the go-ahead for Britain to take part in action led by the USA without seeking prior approval from parliament, and the Financial Times said the cabinet had agreed to this.

Moscow and the Syrian regime deny that the gas attack took place or that either regime was involved.

The Saturday attack targeted a hospital in the Duoma region, near the capital of Damascus, which killed 40 people and injured hundreds of others.

Mr Putin has also talked to the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, urging him not to take action to destabilise Syria and threaten its security.

The possibility of a military strike on Syria was discussed by the United States and its partners, particularly France and the United Kingdom, in the wake of reports on an alleged chemical weapons attack in the Syrian city of Duma.

The U.S. officials told the American news outlet that the Assad regime is known to have used a mixture of chlorine and the nerve agent sarin in previous attacks.

"It is a very, very delicate circumstance, and we've got to make this judgment on a very careful, very deliberate, very well thought-through basis, knowing exactly ... how strong the evidence is", Brexit Secretary David Davis said ahead of Thursday's cabinet.

A joint military operation, possibly with France rather than the U.S.in the lead, could send a message of global unity about enforcing the prohibitions on chemical weapons and counter Syria's political and military support from Russian Federation and Iran. It was not clear whether the presence of the investigators could affect the timing of any USA military action.

Later on Thursday, French President Emmanuel Macron said his country had proof that the Syrian government launched the gas attacks.

Lavrov warned against US military "adventures" in the country, but signaled that Russian Federation remains open for negotiations. "We are not seeking escalation".
