The United States is violating all worldwide norms, and Russian Federation views the latest military strikes against Syria as an act of aggression, Alexander Sherin, first deputy chairman of the State Duma Defense Committee, said on Saturday.

Putin also called for an emergency meeting of the U.N. Security Council.

The suspected poison attack by Syrian government forces that allegedly killed more than 40 people has drawn worldwide outrage and prompted the United States and its allies to consider a military response.

"The immediate priority is to avert the danger of war", said Moscow's United Nations ambassador Vassily Nebenzia on Thursday.

The White House said it was continuing to assess intelligence and talk to its allies about how to respond.

'We can not allow the use of chemical weapons to become normalised - within Syria, on the streets of the United Kingdom, or anywhere else in our world.

"We put facts contrary to your myths", he said. Trump, ignoring Mattis' warning, pushed USA military leaders to develop a plan to attack the Syrian Government.

Syria has continued to deny any chemical weapons were used.

But he also appeared anxious to avoid a wider conflict, saying France would "in no way allow an escalation".

The strikes were condemned by Russian Federation.

13 de abril de 2018, 16:20Moscow, Apr 13 (Prensa Latina) Russia denounced the execution of an alleged chemical attack in the Syrian city of Duma and claimed to have reliable evidence on the special services involved in that case.

A fact-finding mission from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons is expected to head to Douma.

"Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria". The US president claimed that the joint action was meant to establish a "strong deterrent" against the production, spread, and use of chemical weapons.

"The immediate priority is to avert the danger of war", said Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia.

Russian Federation deployed its military forces in Syria, showing their allegiance to the Assad regime.

Eastern Ghouta has remained under a crippling regime siege for the last five years with humanitarian access being completely cut off.

On Thursday, Russia's military said Douma has been brought under full control of the Syrian government under a Russia-mediated deal that secured the evacuation of the rebels and thousands of civilians after it was recaptured by Syrian forces. But reading between the lines, there was a second message: The incoming cruise missiles did not cross the threshold that would provoke a military response against Western forces.

National security experts anxious whether strikes would actually serve to deter Assad. UK Prime Minister Theresa May and US President Donald Trump agreed on the need to deter chemical weapon use in Syria.
