Syria celebrates over its claim it downed British, French, US missiles

OPCW director general Ahmet Uzumcu said his nine-strong, all-volunteer team had reached Damascus, but so far "the team has not yet deployed to Douma" - scene of an alleged chlorine and sarin gas attack on April 7 where 40 people were said to have been killed.

The suspected chemical attack is the latest issue to heighten tensions between Russian Federation and Western powers.

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

Russian President Vladimir Putin spoke to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Sunday, and in a joint statement released by the Kremlin they called the missile strike an "illegal action", that "seriously damages the prospects for a political settlement in Syria".

The Prime Minister will tell MPs on Monday that the strikes were in the national interest because the use of chemical weapons can not be normalised, including in the UK.

"We warned them that next time when they want to discuss the Syrian problem, we will bring here, in The Hague, those people who took part in the White Helmet's choreographed episodes, who, voluntarily or not, were involved in the huge provocations, be it in Syria's Douma or in Khan Shaykhun", he said.

Her comments follow allegations by the head of an global chemical weapons watchdog on Monday that Syrian and Russian officials cited "pending security issues" to keep independent inspectors from reaching the site of the suspected April 7 chemical attack.

Mrs May defended her decision during the 165-minute session, stressing Russian Federation should not be able to have an effective veto over United Kingdom foreign policy by consistently blocking action against the Syrian regime at the UN Security Council.

The US ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, said on Sunday the United States would announce new economic sanctions aimed at companies dealing with equipment related to Assad's alleged use of chemical weapons.

The reaction from Damascus and its backers following the 2017 USA strike in Syria was muted despite repeated threats. And it shouldn't just be us doing it. "But be very clear, if we leave, when we leave, it will be because we know that everything is moving forward".

French President Emmanuel Macron said on Sunday that he had convinced Trump, who previously said he wanted to take United States forces out of Syria, to stay for "the long term".

"It is long overdue that this council condemns the Syrian government for its reign of chemical terror and demands worldwide accountability those responsible for these heinous acts", US Ambassador Kenneth Ward said in comments seen by Reuters. The allies could not wait "to alleviate further humanitarian suffering caused by chemical weapons attacks", according to excerpts of her speech.

"The US mission has not changed".

"We are considering additional sanctions on Russian Federation and a decision will be made in the near future", White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Monday.
