Russia Wants UN Chief At Meeting On US Threats

Citing US estimates that Assad has used chemical weapons "at least 50 times" in the seven-year war, Haley said: "All nations and all people will be harmed if we allow Assad to normalize the use of chemical weapons".

Following airstrikes on Damascus, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has said that all countries are obliged to "act consistently" with the UN Charter, noting that the document is "very clear on these issues".

Albania's Foreign Ministry said Le Drian canceled a trip there planned Friday "due to global developments in the security field". "No country can be allowed to use chemical weapons with impunity".

U.N. Secretary General António Guterres told the Security Council that he feared events could escalate rapidly into a regional and even global conflict, and urged all states "to act responsibly in these unsafe circumstances".

"Perpetrators of such attacks must be identified and held accountable", the UN's International Commission of Inquiry on Syria said in a statement, noting that the use of such weapons is strictly banned under a global treaty ratified by Syria. "Africa and the Middle East have the highest proportions of young people". "But should the United States and our allies decide to act in Syria, it will be in defense of a principle on which we all agree", Haley told the UN Security Council. Both Russia and Syria have denied it.

Russian Federation has been a staunch ally of Syrian President Bashar Assad's government and has helped turn the tide of war in his favor since entering the conflict in September 2015.

The Palestinian-Israeli conflict is deepening again, he said.

The move Friday came as the U.S., France and Britain are in extensive consultations about launching a military strike on Syria in retaliation for suspected chemical weapons attacks.

"However ... any action that would lead to the failure or harm activities led by Turkey, Iran and Russian Federation toward a lasting peace should be avoided", Yildirim said.

As the prospect of a US strike loomed, the first team of investigators from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons arrived in Syria to look for evidence, with a second team expected soon.

Both Syria and Russian Federation requested an FFM team to be dispatched after opposition groups claimed that the Syrian army executed a chemical weapons attack there, alleging there were scores of deaths and hundreds of casualties. He said the second priority now is to get inspectors from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons to the Damascus suburb of Douma where a suspected poisonous gas attack took place last weekend to see what happened - and "that nothing prevents them from doing it". He says Moscow has "irrefutable information that it was another fabrication". Gen. Igor Konashenkov, speaks at a briefing in Moscow on April 13, 2018.

He said that "intelligence agencies of a state that is now striving to spearhead a Russo-phobic campaign were involved in that fabrication". He didn't elaborate or name the state.
