Russia likely to call United Nations meeting over Syria attack: Russian lawmaker

"God forbid anything adventurous will be done in Syria following the Libyan and Iraqi experience", Lavrov added at his press conference, in a dig at the USA government.

The US and its allies delivered a military strike against Syria precisely at the moment when the country received a chance for a peaceful future, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said. "They may be only welcomed by those who are overseas and expect to hide out while continuing efforts to destroy this entire region in order to keep advancing their geopolitical projects here", he added.

"As for the channels - and they are periodical conversations between presidents and quite regular channels between the military - they are being used", the minister said.

Russian Federation and the United States are using their channels of communications on Syria, according to the minister.

Several NGOs, including the White Helmets, confirmed that chemical weapons were used in the Eastern Ghouta area on April 7.

Russian Federation said that the Western powers "cynically" carried out military action hours before a team from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) was set to begin an investigation into the suspected chemical weapons attack in the town of Douma in Eastern Ghouta that sparked the intervention by the USA and its allies.

And in a press conference on Friday, Russia's ambassador to the United Kingdom claimed the UK-funded White Helmets are "famous for staging attacks" in Syria. "Russian Federation will demand a meeting of the U.N. Security Council, I think, for sure", Dzhabarov, who is the deputy head of Russia's foreign affairs committee, was quoted by RIA as saying.

"First the "Arab spring" tested the Syrian people, then Islamic State (in Iraq and Syria), now smart American rockets".

The head of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, after meeting with German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas, noted that Russia's participation is necessary to resolve the conflict in Syria.
