France is urging Russian Federation to join a push for a political solution in Syria after joint U.S., French and British attacks on Syrian chemical weapons sites.

"Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria. Russian Federation will demand a meeting of the UN Security Council, I think, for sure", Vladimir Dzhabarov, who is the deputy head of Russia's foreign affairs committee, was quoted by RIA newsagency as saying.

By contrast, eight countries voted against the Russian draft - the U.S., U.K., France, Netherlands, Sweden, Kuwait, Poland and Ivory Coast.

Eight countries voted against the Russian-drafted text on Saturday, while Peru, Kazakhstan, Ethiopia and Equatorial Guinea abstained.

Syria and its ally Russia have denied such an attack took place, and Moscow has accused Britain of helping to stage the Douma incident to stoke anti-Russian hysteria.

The U.S., United Kingdom and France said they launched airstrikes against Syrian chemical sites after obtaining evidence that a chemical weapon was used by President Bashar Assad's government. "We're ready to maintain this strain, if the Syrian regime is silly sufficient to check our will", U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley mentioned.

Mattis and Dunford also said they know chlorine was used in the Syrian chemical weapons attack and would not rule out sarin gas. He has previously told his national security team he wants USA troops to exit Syria within six months.


President Donald Trump erupted in anger when he learned the USA was expelling 60 Russian diplomats in March, while France and Germany were only expelling four each, the Washington Post reported late Sunday.

"If the Syrian regime uses this poison gas again, the United States is locked and loaded", Haley said.

It was not immediately clear when it could be put to a vote. Russian Federation and Syria have mentioned there was no proof of a chemical weapons assault.
