Russia, Iran and Syria issue warning to US

Washington blamed the Syrian government for the attack.

Russian Federation vetoed a United Nations resolution this week condemning the chemical weapons attack in Syria.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said a suspected chemical weapons attack was a "fabrication" to justify a U.S. military strike, as Moscow digs in to defend its ally despite increasing strains with Washington.

Russia, Syria, and Iran warned the United States The warning came after the US launched 59 missiles on a Syrian government airbase.

Lavrov: I Told Tillerson That US Syria Strikes Contradict Anti-Terror Goal
Tillerson is considering the request, he said, "and we expect that Washington will have a constructive reaction". He said it was "unacceptable that the OPCW analyses the evidence not on location".

He said attempts to remove Syrian president Bashar al-Assad from power "won't succeed" during the meeting in Moscow on Friday.

A senior Russian diplomat says the United States and Russia are again exchanging information on a hotline created to prevent midair incidents over Syria, but that the formal agreement on such exchanges has not been renewed. More than three months ago, that body received evidence sent by Russian experts about the use of toxic substances by the extremists in the Syrian city of Aleppo, but we never received any results, Lavrov charged.

On April 10th Rick Wiles left the Republican Party in protest of what he referred to as a "Deep State" coup against the populist revolt which elected President Trump. "That is to say, the amount of information being exchanged is determined, as I understand it, depending on the situation".

Lavrov said Assad's opponents had "in essence" given guarantees for the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons to visit the location where at least 87 people died, but the watchdog was refusing to go.

Syria's Foreign Ministry has condemned the United States strike as "a flagrant aggression" against the Arab country, and said Washington's real objective was to "weaken the strength of the Syrian army in confronting terrorist groups". What does that means?, wondered Lavrov in allusion to Washington's stories to justify its attack, according to which Syrian planes departed from Al Shairat to bomb the town of Jan-Sheijon, in Idlib, with chemical weapons. "Such acts of aggression are obviously meant to derail the peace process, which was endorsed in a unanimously adopted resolution of the U.N. Security Council and implies that the fate of Syria would be decided only by the Syrian people", he said.

In a combative interview published Thursday by Agence France-Presse, Assad dismissed photographs and video footage that moved President Trump to launch retaliatory strikes on a Syrian air base.

If the evacuations are completed, they would be the first in number of rounds stretching over two months to evacuate some 30,000 Syrians from besieged areas, in a deal struck by rebels and the government.
