US, Allies Tell UN: Syria Strikes Legal, Justified

Chemical Attacks in Syria UN Council Must Prevent Syria'Spiralling Out of Control, Says Antonio Guterres

Addressing the council, US Ambassador Nikki Haley said the United States was confident that the military strikes had crippled Syria's chemical weapons program.

"GMMF, while outraged by the continued reports of use of chemical weapons in the Syrian Arab Republic, is deeply alarmed by the recent events that have resulted in President Trump's announcement of airstrikes upon Syria".

The USA, France and Britain presented a new draft resolution on the investigation of chemical attacks in Syria in the UN Security Council, as AFP reported.

The UN emergency meeting is scheduled to take place on Friday evening. "We should not give up on the U.N being the way to achieve that".

Commenting about the atrocious gang rape and murder of 8-year-old Asifa in Jammu's Kathua district, the United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres called the heinous act "horrific" and asked that the guilty be brought to justice.




Further actions violating the United Nations charter such as the recent US -led strikes on Syria will result in chaos in global relations, Russian President Vladimir Putin told his Iranian counterpart Hassan Ruhani over phone on Sunday.

The West has accused Syria of failing to live up to its commitment to scrap its chemical weapons program, under a 2013 deal reached between the United States and Russian Federation. Damascus has denied responsibility for the incident that has widened a rift between the West and Moscow, which backs Syria's government. He strongly backed the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons' fact-finding mission to investigate last weekend's suspected poison gas attack in the Damascus suburb of Douma, saying the first OPCW team is already in Syria and "a second is expected today or tomorrow".

China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom and the U.S.? the Council could not adopt three draft resolutions that would have responded to a suspected chemical weapons attack in the Syrian town of Douma almost a week ago.

The attack has drawn worldwide outrage and prompted the United States and its allies to consider a military strike on Syria, something Moscow has strongly warned against.

She told reporters ahead of the meeting that London "believes it was both right and legal" to take military action "to alleviate further humanitarian suffering by degrading the Syrian regime's chemical weapon capability and deterring the use of chemical weapons". "The solution must be political through the Geneva intra-Syrian talks".
