Moscow to propose United Nations resolution to probe alleged Syria chemical attack

Trump promises 'forceful action' over Syria's suspected chemical attack

"The team is preparing to deploy to Syria shortly".

"It would also create a new investigative mechanism to look into chemical weapons attacks in Syria and determine who is responsible".

Dozens of people in Douma died and hundreds were injured in the attack, according to the World Health Organization.

The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons said the Syrian government and its Russian allies invited it to send in a fact-finding mission.

"If it's Russian Federation, if it's Syria, if it's Iran, if it's all of them together, we'll figure it out", he said.

The use of chemical weapons has been regarded as a line in the sand by the worldwide community.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement Tuesday that Trump will not attend the 8th Summit of the Americas in Lima, Peru or travel to Bogota, Colombia as planned.

Russia, a major Syrian ally, said Tuesday it will propose a United Nations resolution to investigate the alleged attack.

The White House sharply rejected any suggestion that Trump's own words about pulling United States troops out of Syria had opened the door for the attack, which killed more than 40 people, including children.

Will there be a military strike?




Some Conservative party members have already urged May to consider committing to a military response without seeking the approval of parliament, which is due to return from recess on April 16.

Russian Federation has used its veto power 11 times at the council to block action targeting its Syrian ally.

May, wary of the domestic political risks of promising military action, has so far focused on the need to discover the facts about the attack and establish a common worldwide response. UK Prime Minister Theresa May spoke to President Trump and President Macron of France in separate calls on Tuesday.

Lavrov said Russian Federation would propose a "transparent and honest" investigation with the involvement of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons at the Security Council on Tuesday.

The pre-dawn missile attack came hours after a deadly suspected poison gas attack on the last remaining foothold for rebels fighting the Assad regime.

Neither the death toll nor what exactly occurred can be verified as the area is blocked off, with access denied.

President Donald Trump warned on Monday that there would be a "big price to pay" for the suspected attack.

The reported show of force by the United States comes just days after a devastating chemical attack killed and injured dozens of Syrians in the city of Douma.

Reports suggested that hundreds of people, mostly women and children, were brought to medical centres with difficulty breathing, foaming at the mouth, and burning sensations in the eyes.
