"Russia strongly condemns the attack on Syria where Russian servicemen are helping the legitimate government in the war on terrorism", the Kremlin press office quoted Putin as saying, TASS reports.

"Vladimir Putin, in particular, stressed that if such actions committed in violation of the UN Charter continue, then it will inevitably lead to chaos in worldwide relations", a Kremlin statement said.

McKenzie said the strike would "set the Syrian chemical weapons program back for years", adding cautiously: "I'm not going to say that they're going to be unable to conduct a chemical attack in the future". "And they will go directly to any sort of companies that were dealing with equipment related to Assad and chemical weapons used". She reported Mr Trump telling her on Saturday that the U.S. was "locked and loaded" and prepared for a sustained military effort against Syria, while his Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis said it was a "one-time" shot. -Russian relations are at a low point.

"You can not say the Americans ... do not demonstrate a desire to lead a strategic dialogue", he said.

"A week has gone by in which we have talked".

On Friday evening, President Donald Trump ordered a military attack against Syrian President Bashar Assad.

More than 100 missiles were fired, in response to a suspected deadly chemical attack on the town of Douma on April 7. Moscow condemned the Western states for refusing to wait for the OPCW's findings before attacking. It was not clear when the visit would take place. The U.S. said that in addition to research, the Barzah facility was used as a center for the development and testing of both chemical and biological weapons.

Putin and Iran have maintained their support for Assad despite his continued use of chemical weapons, which Russian Federation said it would stop in 2013. "This is not about trying to turn the tide of the conflict in Syria", he told the BBC, adding that Russian Federation was the only country able to pressure Assad to negotiate an end to the conflict.

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley addresses the UN Security Council on Syria during a meeting of the Council at UN headquarters in NY on March 12, 2018.

Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said Britain had a duty to show that Syria had not "got away with it" and it was standing up against Assad's "barbarism".

USA now has over 2,000 troops in Syria and a number of contractors. "If there were chemical weapons, we would need to wear masks and take other protective measures to be staying here", he said.

Opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn, who has opposed British military action throughout his career, described the Syrian attack as "legally questionable".

"I would like to believe that we will not see a day that is worse than today", he said.

Say said working with refugees has not only touched her life, but it's also helped shape her views on foreign affairs.
