Russian Federation could ban USA imports

Russian Federation said its experts found no trace of chemical agents.

White Helmets first-responder volunteer and activists claimed an alleged chemical attack on April 7 by the Syrian government killed over 40 people in Douma, the allegations that drew worldwide outrage and prompted Washington and its allies to consider a military response. Responding to this warning, Moscow indicated that such an action could spark a US-Russia war. "It means the United States uses these rocket engines to launch their military satellites", he said. Russian Federation told the United States and its allies not to carry out any military strike.

Speaking at the United Nations on Friday, US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley pushed back against denials by both the Syrian and Russian governments that chemical agents were used in the weekend's attack.

The US president said Washington is prepared to "sustain" pressure on al-Assad until he ends what Trump called a criminal pattern of killing his own people with internationally banned chemical weapons. The military action is a response to an apparent chemical weapons attack that killed dozens of people earlier this month.

"Russian Federation can complain all it wants about fake news, but no one is buying its lies and cover-ups", Haley said.

"Any use of chemical weapons is abhorrent".

Now we have it, and surprisingly, they are not blaming rebel groups.

"We welcome this operation that articulates the conscience of all humanity in the face of the Douma attack which has a strong suspicion of being carried out by the regime", the Turkish foreign ministry said in a statement. "And we'd strike a blow against this right", explained Mikhail Emelyanov, the deputy chairman of the Duma's Legislation Committee.

Konstantin Gaaze, a liberal independent analyst here, said Friday that Putin still hopes to negotiate a new start to U.S.

But Guterres said Syria today is the most serious, and "there is no military solution to the conflict". "We can not take such risks", he said at a forum.

Later, speaking at the meeting, called by Russian Federation to discuss the prospect of an American strike on Syria, Haley said, "This meeting should not be about so-called 'unilateral threats, ' it should be about the multiple actions Russian Federation has taken to bring us to this point".

Syria serves as an important access point to the Mediterranean Sea for Russian ships and a hub for Russia in the Middle East. The government, however, said evacuations from Douma were ongoing and no Syrian government forces had entered the town. France is already involved in the USA -led coalition created in 2014 to fight the Islamic State group in Syria and Iraq.
