Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said a reported chemical attack in Syria was staged by foreign agents.

Diplomats spent most of Saturday morning debating the recent strikes, which USA, United Kingdom and French leaders all said were in response to President Bashar al-Assad's alleged use of chemical weapons against his own people.

Late Friday night, the U.S. President Donald Trump announced that the U.S., United Kingdom and France jointly launched strikes targeting the Assad regime's chemical weapons capabilities after a suspected chemical attack killed dozens outside of Damascus.

President Donald Trump is pressing for a more aggressive USA strike against Syria than military chiefs have recommended as he adopts a tougher stance against Russian President Vladimir Putin, whose support for Syria's government has allowed it to crush opposition forces, US officials said.

In the near term, the military strike appeared to ramp up a searing war of words between Washington and Moscow, which regarded the action as a attack on Russian Federation itself.

During a phone call late on Thursday, UK Prime Minister Theresa May and US President Donald Trump agreed on the need to deter chemical weapon use in Syria.

A day before a team from the worldwide chemical weapons watchdog was to arrive in Douma, just east of Damascus, Sergey Lavrov said Russian experts have already inspected the site of the alleged attack and found no trace of chemical weapons, adding without elaboration that Moscow has "irrefutable information that it was another fabrication".

Konstantin Kosachyov, chairman of the global affairs committee in the upper house of Parliament, said the strikes appeared to have been aimed at preventing an investigation of the alleged chemical-weapons attack that Washington cited as the justification. Moscow alleged soon after the suspected April 7 attack that the images of the victims in Douma were fakes.

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

In France, Macron claimed in a TV interview he had "proof" that Assad's regime had used chemical weapons and vowed a response "in due course".

The accusation has been strongly denied by the Bashar al-Assad government in Damascus.

Bolton has called the Syrian civil war a "sideshow" and said he is much more concerned about Iran's role there than about whether Assad remains in power. Both the Syrian and Russian governments have said they would support the study. Mattis said no additional attacks were planned, though Trump earlier suggested the strikes could last longer.

"It is necessary to consider not only deliveries of missile defense systems, but also deliveries accompanied by those people who can train the personnel of these countries, so that Syria, Iran and North Korea could deploy these systems, if they wanted", Sherin said. The government's capture of Douma, the last town held by the rebels in eastern Ghouta, marked a major victory for Assad.
