United Kingdom lacks understanding of events in Syria: Russia

Meanwhile, the Russian government has condemned missile strikes by the US on a Syrian airbase, calling Washington's move as "aggression against sovereign state in violation of global law".

Nikki Haley, the USA ambassador to the United Nations, said the departure of Syrian President Bashar Assad is a US priority, just as it was under the Obama administration, and that peace in Syria was probably impossible while he remained in power.

"The nation of Iran will remain alongside the Syrian nation in fighting terrorism and safeguarding Syria's territorial integrity", Rouhani said in the call on Saturday evening, according to a statement on the presidency website.

It was also a departure from the approach of his predecessor, former President Barack Obama, who had weighed a military response in 2013 after Assad launched a sarin gas attack that killed more than 1,000 people near Damascus.

However, "whether Russian Federation was complicit here or whether they were simply incompetent or whether they got outwitted" by the Syrian government, they had "failed in their commitment to the global community", he said.

He has scored 13 goals in the league this far this campaign and is just four behind club's top scorer Diego Costa. But Kante, 26, had choices, for example, probability of signing with Chelsea's London rivals Arsenal.

"Someone who uses barrel bombs and chemicals to kill his own people simply can not be the future leader of Syria", he stated. Activist Alaa Al-Youssef said that the strike which killed a woman hit a residential neighbourhood.

Cavusoglu also said Ankara has been on a "different page" with Moscow on Assad since the beginning, adding that Turkey "would have given up its principles if it cares what other countries think when there's a chemical attack and a crime against humanity". "Russian Federation should ask themselves, .Why are we supporting this murderous regime that is committing mass murder of its own population?"

Saudi Arabia hailed the strike as a "courageous decision" by President Donald Trump and a Saudi ally, the United Arab Emirates echoed that support.

"We are prepared to do more", he said.

"We have to make sure that we're pushing that process", she continued.

ISIS now controls less than 7 percent of country: Iraq army
The eastern half of the city is now completely under the control of Iraqi security forces, Rasool said. ISIL's reach peaked in 2014 when it controlled nearly 40 percent of the country.

While former United States president Obama chose not to intervene militarily following Assad's use of chemical weapons in 2013, his administration sought the elimination of all chemical weapons in the country.

He said the United Kingdom continues to "deplore" Moscow's defence of Mr Assad's regime as he pulled out of talks with Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov.

Russian Federation continues to back the Assad regime and denies the Syrian leader gassed his own people.

In his first interview as President Donald Trump's top national security adviser, Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster on Sunday backed the USA missile attack on Syria last week, saying "we're prepared to do more", even as Russian officials hint that current USA strategy could mean war.
