UN Security Council Refuses to Condemn US Attack on Syria

UN Security Council Refuses to Condemn US Attack on Syria”

The second option proposed a wider set of targets, including suspected chemical-weapons research facilities and military command centers.

The United States, France and Britain have said the missile strikes were limited to Syria's chemical weapons capabilities and not aimed at toppling Assad or intervening in the civil war.

Assad told a group of visiting Russian lawmakers that the Western missile strikes were an act of aggression, Russian news agencies reported.

They have been tasked with investigating the site of the alleged April 7 chemical attack in the town of Douma, in the formerly rebel-held enclave of Eastern Ghouta, which Western powers said involved chlorine and sarin, and killed dozens.

Douma, which had been in rebel hands, is now controlled by Syrian forces. The mechanism would look at cases where the OPCW fact-finding mission has established chemical weapons were used or likely used.

May plans to tell lawmakers that the airstrikes were "in Britain's national interest", were carried out to stop further suffering from chemical weapons attacks and had broad global support.

Wresting back the opposition stronghold on the doorstep of Damascus had been a priority for the resurgent regime.

Speaking with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday, Macron said the priority must be to "initiate negotiations as soon as possible on a credible and inclusive political process", according to a statement from the Elysee Palace.

"The regime of Bashar Assad has an enemy who is his people", Macron said.

According to American officials, the operation involved three USA destroyers, a French frigate and a U.S. submarine located in the Red Sea, the Gulf and the eastern Mediterranean.

George said helping the people of Syria will take more than airstrikes.

A Western draft resolution obtained by AFP at a meeting of the UN Security Council Saturday calls for unimpeded deliveries of humanitarian aid and enforcement of a ceasefire, along with demands that Syria engage in UN-led peace talks.

Macron's comments come after U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said on Sunday that the United States would not pull its troops out of Syria until its goals were accomplished.

Only China and Bolivia voted alongside Russian Federation in favour of its draft resolution condemning the military action, while eight countries opposed it.
