U.S. at UN Makes Case for Military Action Against Syria

Britain will take action to "alleviate humanitarian distress and deter the future use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime", the British Ambassador to the United Nations, Karen Pierce, said here Friday.

The Portuguese diplomat reported that a mission of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) has already arrived in Syria to clarify the facts of the alleged use of chemical weapons and soon, a second team must be added.

The current situation in Syria is perilous, Ma told a Security Council meeting requested by Russian Federation, adding that it's at a crossroads of war and peace.

Guterres said "the Cold War is back - with a vengeance but with a difference", because safeguards that managed the risk of escalation in the past "no longer seem to be present".

Asked whether there will be war between the United States and Russian Federation in case of a USA military strike against Syria, Nebenzia said: "We can not exclude any possibility, unfortunately, because we saw messages that are coming from Washington - they were very bellicose".

Syria's sovereignty, independence, unity and territorial integrity should be respected, he said.

"I wish there was dialogue through appropriate channels to avert any risky development".

Russian officials have said USA and Russian military staffs remain in contact regarding Syria, even as Russian media have carried stories in recent days about the potential outbreak of "World War III" as a outcome of a US airstrike against Assad.

Even the threat of use of force is against the UN Charter, he said.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said April 11 that Moscow has "undeniable evidence" the suspected chemical weapons attack in Syria was staged by a country with a "Russophobic campaign".

The UN Security Council will hold a session on Friday with UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to discuss the situation in Syria and threats posed to Damascus by the US.

This situation has repercussions beyond the region and has ramifications in the entire world: the Cold War has returned, he said when intervening in the Security Council.

The United States has proof that Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad's regime launched a chemical weapons strike last weekend on the then rebel-held suburb of Douma, State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said Friday.

The use of chemical weapons constitutes a war crime.

But Guterres said Syria today is the most serious, and "there is no military solution to the conflict".

Russia, which has stonewalled diplomatic efforts at the UN Security Council, has vehemently denied a chemical attack took place. Delattre added that the Syrian government's decision to use chemical weapons meant that it had "reached the point of no return". Gen. Igor Konashenkov, speaks at a briefing in Moscow on April 13, 2018.

Last month Britain blamed Russian Federation for a nerve agent attack on an ex-spy and his daughter, accusations Russian Federation has vehemently denied.
