Putin, Rouhani discuss US-led airstrikes on Syria

Putin, Rouhani discuss US-led airstrikes on Syria”

Additionally, the leaders said that Syria had destroyed its stockpile of chemical weapons and is no longer producing such chemical agents, as per a deal Damascus agreed to in 2013 in Geneva.

The mission is in retaliation for last Saturday's suspected chemical attack that killed dozens of Syrian civilians, including children. Defence secretary Gavin Wiliamson told BBC Radio 4: "Our service personnel have played an important role in terms of degrading the ability of the Syrian regime to use chemical weapons in the future, but also it sends a clear message to the Syrian regime that they can not continue to use chemical weapons with impunity".

Iran's President Hassan Rouhani, right, shakes hands with Russian President Vladimir Putin during their meeting at the Saadabad Palace in Tehran, Iran, November 1, 2017.

He said: "If such actions, carried out in violation of the United Nations Charter, are repeated, that would inevitably provoke chaos in worldwide relations".

Meanwhile, Mr Rouhani accused the USA "and some Western countries" of not wanting Syria "to reach permanent stability". It is in America's national security interests to deter the use of chemical weapons, and the global community must not look the other way as Assad continues to murder his own people.

Britain and France on Saturday joined the US-led missile strikes, which came a week after a deadly attack on the town of Douma where civilians were hit with chlorine and sarin according to the Western powers. Bush was addressing sailors aboard a ship alongside a "Mission Accomplished" banner.

She said the three U.S. goals for accomplishing its mission were making sure chemical weapons were not used in a way that could harm USA national interests, that the Islamic State group was defeated, and that there was a good vantage point to watch what Iran was doing.

"I knew they would seize on this but felt it is such a great Military term, it should be brought back".

London and Washington have played down the prospect of further military action against Syria but Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, said there would be fresh sanctions against Russian companies which have helped the Assad regime's chemical weapons programme.

The shadow of the 2003 invasion of Iraq still lingers in the corridors of Britain's parliament, when MPs backed then-prime minister Tony Blair in joining USA military action.

Assad told a group of visiting Russian lawmakers that the Western missile strikes were an act of aggression, Russian news agencies reported. They haven't laid out a strategy and military action shouldn't be taken as a one off.

Socialist Unity Centre of India activists in Kolkata burned an effigy of Donald Trump as they protested the strikes. We also hear about the fears they have for their famlies overseas.

Western diplomats said they were ready to allow time for negotiations to make every effort to bring Russian Federation aboard.

"The Syrian regime needs to understand this is potentially just the beginning", Leighton said.

In the UK, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, Lib Dem leader Vince Cable and SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon criticised the strikes.

· UK Prime Minister Theresa May described the strikes as "limited and targeted" and said that four fighter jets had fired missiles at the base west of Homs.

He also called her justification on humanitarian grounds "legally debatable". New satellite images show a glimpse of the damage done by the strike. Meanwhile, British PM Theressa May is to appear in the House of Commons to explain her decision to go ahead with the airstrikes over Syria.
