Russian Federation not tampering with Syria attack site

Air strikes on Syria will not change course of war UK's Johnson

At the meeting, the fifth in a week on chemical weapons in Syria, Russia and its supporters again clashed with the USA and its allies over a suspected poison gas attack on April 7 in the Damascus suburb of Douma.

"It is our concern that they may have tampered with it with the intent of thwarting the efforts of the OPCW Fact-Finding Mission to conduct an effective investigation", he said.

The U.N. Security Council overwhelmingly rejected a Russian resolution calling for condemnation of "aggression" by the United States, United Kingdom and France against Syria on Saturday, a vote reflecting support for the allied airstrikes on Syrian chemical sites. "We convinced him to remain", he said.

The team was still not been granted safe passage on Monday, CNN quoted British envoy to the OPCW, Peter Wilson, as saying.

The inspectors arrived on Saturday, but in a statement posted on Twitter, the British delegation said Russian Federation and Syria had not yet allowed inspectors access to Douma. 'The only way out of this is through negotiations, ' he said.

Speaking to the BBC, the Russian foreign minister denied chemical weapons had been used in Douma. "What did take place was the staged thing", he added.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's regime was suspected of orchestrating a chlorine attack, which occurred on April 7.

The inspectors for the Hague-based OPCW met Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad in the presence of Russian officers and a senior Syrian security official in Damascus for about three hours on Sunday.

Russian Federation and the West, he added, were facing a situation worse than during the Cold War due to a lack of channels of communication.

Speaking ahead of the PM's statement to the House of Commons, her official spokesman said "early indications are that the action which was carried out has been a success and there has been strong worldwide backing from our allies".

The US says 105 missiles were launched and it believes none were intercepted by Syrian defences.

'The worldwide community will not allow chemical weapons to come back into our everyday life, ' she said.

Trump tweeted "Mission Accomplished" on Saturday after US, French and British warplanes and ships launched more than 100 missiles almost unopposed by Syrian air defences.

"The most conservative option would have hit a narrow set of targets related to Syria's chemical-weapons capabilities" it said.

Doctors at the hospital where suspected victims were treated told reporters on the tour that none of the patients that night had suffered chemical weapons injuries - they were asphyxiated by dust and smoke in a bombardment.

But shadow attorney general Baroness Chakrabarti questioned the Government's justification for the airstrikes, telling BBC Radio 4's Today programme: "You can't use force under global law just to punish Syria for bad behaviour".

And in London and Paris, British Prime Minister Theresa May and French President Emmanuel Macron faced criticism from political opponents over their decisions to take part in the air strikes against Syria.

However, the White House said Mr Trump still wants United States forces to withdraw from the region as soon as possible.

"The US mission has not changed - the President has been clear that he wants US forces to come home as quickly as possible", press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement.

"The White House is right to recall that the military engagement is against Daesh [IS] and will finish the day that the war against Daesh has been completed", he said.

Addressing the French parliament, Prime Minister Edouard Philippe said Saturday's operation had not been the "prelude to a war".
