Russian Federation not tampering with Syria attack site

Russian Federation not tampering with Syria attack site

In a telephone conversation between Putin and his Iranian counterpart, Hassan Rouhani, the pair said that the Western strikes had damaged the chances of achieving a political resolution in the seven-year Syria conflict.

Russian President Vladimir Putin warned on Sunday that further Western attacks on Syria would bring chaos to world affairs, as Washington prepared to increase pressure on Russia with new economic sanctions.

UN Security Council has rejected Russia-sponsored resolution seeking condemnation of joint military air strikes launched by the United States, Britain and France on Syria in retaliation for an alleged chemical weapon attack.

He warned that if aggression and blatant violation of worldwide regulations were to become easy and cost-free, "we would witness new instability in the regional and global system". "Russia and Syria must cooperate". The OPCW team is tasked with determining whether banned substances were used in the Douma attack, a charge that both Syria and its ally Russian Federation vehemently denied.

The U.S. -led strikes did nothing to alter the strategic balance or dent Assad's supremacy and 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 Assad.

Putin emphasized that Tehran and Moscow have a common stance on many regional and worldwide developments.

The US, the United Kingdom and France launched a series of attacks on specific targets in the war-torn country and CNN reported that the coalition forces claimed that they were targeting a research laboratory and two storage facilities which were believed to be the country's chemical weapons programme sites.

He added that the United Nations was founded to build consensus among countries, adding that it should not serve the political interests of certain powers, because it would create more chaos on the global scene.

Putin denounced "with the utmost firmness" the strikes which he described as "an act of aggression against a sovereign state which is at the forefront of the fight against terrorism".

He also stressed the importance of more efforts and consultation among Iran, Russia and Turkey in order to restore peace and stability to Syria after the US-led military strikes.

Worldwide inspectors were to try on Monday to visit the site of a suspected gas attack which brought US-led missile strikes on Syria and heightened the diplomatic confrontation between the West and President Bashar al-Assad's main ally Russian Federation.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov denied that Moscow had interfered with any evidence: "I can guarantee that Russia has not tampered with the site", he told the BBC in an interview.

In London, British Prime Minister Theresa May was facing criticism over her decision to bypass parliament and take part in the air strikes against Syria.

He added that the aerial aggression was accompanied with a campaign of misdirection and lies at the UN Security Council against Syria and Russian Federation, which is Syria's close ally in the fight against foreign-backed militancy in the country.
