Putin told his Iranian counterpart on what to expect in Western countries

Meanwhile, the USA has said it is preparing to increase pressure on Russian Federation with new economic sanctions.

Russian President Vladimir Putin told his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani on Sunday that further Western missile strikes on Syria would lead to chaos in worldwide relations, Russian news agencies cited the Kremlin as saying.

On Saturday, the USA, U.K., and France launched airstrikes on the Assad regime's alleged chemical weapons facilities in Syria.

Following the chemical attack, on April 14, the US, UK and France dropped more than 100 bombs near Syrian capital on targets believed to be associated with manufacturing or harbouring chemical weapons.

Critics say the pipeline would increase European dependence on Russian Federation for energy and enrich its state-owned energy companies at a time when Moscow stands accused of endangering European security through alleged election meddling and other actions.

Following the talks, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that Russia would continue striving for Syria's territorial integrity and sovereignty.

The Western allies have said the aim was to prevent the further use of chemical weapons, not to intervene in the civil war or topple Mr Assad. Spokesperson of the German federal government, Steffen Seibert said at a press conference that the two leaders agreed on telephone call that the situation was particularly urgent, Xinhua news agency reported.

According to the Kremlin, Putin and Merkel both stressed the importance of an "objective investigation" into the suspected attack in Douma by inspectors from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW).

The Iranian Foreign Ministry on Monday blamed the "strategic mistakes" of the United States policies for the crisis in the volatile Middle East.

Putin criticized the air strikes carried out late last week by the United States, Britain, and France against Syrian government facilities, the Kremlin said in a statement on April 17.
