Russia: UK spies 'staged' toxic Syria attack that killed 43 people

The Russian leader warned against "ill-considered and unsafe actions ... that would have consequences beyond conjecture". He didn't elaborate or name the state.

Mr Yakovenko also accused the United Kingdom of deliberately classifying documents to obfuscate investigations and denied Russian Federation had ever produced Novichok, the deadly nerve agent that Britain has named as the source, which has been backed by the OPCW as one of "high purity".

When Syrian President Bashar al-Assad forces launched a chemical weapons attack against civilian targets past year, Trump was horrified by the deaths of "beautiful little babies" and quickly ordered a missile strike against a Syrian government airfield, although he listened to top military advisers and made a decision to minimize Russian and other casualties.

"Insulting the President of Russia is unacceptable and inadmissible", added the envoy, after President Donald Trump directly called out his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin over his support for the Assad regime.

Pierce said she wanted "to state categorically. that Britain has no involvement and would never have any involvement in the use of a chemical weapon".

Russian Federation has described the reports of a chemical attack as a "provocation" created to justify Western intervention.

Speaking to reporters in Moscow, Lavrov reiterated a strong warning to the West against military action in Syria, saying any such "adventures" in Syria would increase flows of refugees into Europe.

He was often praised last season for his work ethic off the ball, and his ability to make incisive passes to open up defences. Manchester United legend Bryan Robson is convinced Jose Mourinho has his squad on the way to being title challengers.

"The immediate priority is to avert the danger of war", Moscow's United Nations ambassador Vassily Nebenzia said on Thursday.

"It's clear that the goal of these unsubstantiated lies ... is to discredit the Syrian government and to justify the use of force by external actors".

U.S., British and French forces pounded Syria with more than 100 missiles early on Saturday in response to a poison gas attack that killed dozens of people last week, in the biggest intervention by Western powers against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

On the ground in Syria, rebels in Eastern Ghouta surrendered their heavy weapons and their leader left the enclave, signalling the end of one of the bloodiest assaults of the seven-year war and a major win for the Assad regime.

"The sole thing that they have an interest in is to oust the Syrian government and to deter, contain the Russian Federation", he added.

Another senior official said Trump and his aides had largely settled on a consensus view on what strategy to take and that work continued on the timing and coordination with allies who plan to participate.

He noted that the Russian and USA militaries have a hotline to prevent incidents, adding that it's not clear if it would be sufficient amid mounting tensions.
