Russia has adequate response to any kind of US pressure - Foreign Ministry

Russian warns of 'consequences' after US-led strikes on Syria

But after the attack, Russia's Ministry of Defence quickly said no Russian air defences were deployed against the incoming fire, even though thousands of the country's troops are stationed across Syria.

Witnesses told CNN that they heard explosions in the capital city of Damascus and that they began while Trump was making his address.

The Kremlin will also use the crisis to advance its narrative of an aggressive West that plunges the world into chaos and disregards worldwide law.

Antonov added: "Insulting the President of Russian Federation is unacceptable and inadmissible", and said that the USA "has no moral right to blame other countries" since it possesses a large arsenal of chemical weapons of its own.

On Saturday the United States, Britain and France carried out a joint operation against the chemical attack by Syria.

"The combined American, British and French response to these atrocities will integrate all instruments of our national power: military, economic and diplomatic", Trump said.

British Prime Minister Theresa May won backing from her senior ministers on Thursday to take unspecified action with the United States and France to deter further use of chemical weapons by Syria. The cause of the punitive strikes were unverified reports on an alleged chemical attack in Douma, blamed on the Syrian Government.

"It is long overdue that this council condemns the Syrian government for its reign of chemical terror and demands worldwide accountability for those responsible for these heinous acts", Ward said in comments obtained by Reuters. He said Syria's air defenses were ineffective and that numerous more than 40 surface-to-air missiles fired by the Syrians were launched after the allied attack was over. "We warned about this long ago", he said.

California rejects Trump's request for National Guard troops on border
Brown was clear last week that California troops will help go after drugs, guns and criminal gangs, but not immigrants. Customs and Border Protection's acting deputy commissioner, told reporters in Washington.

She said the administration has responded with a number of aggressive actions, such as "the sanctions continuing to happen, which you'll see again on Monday". The source says they are "significantly enhanced" in terms of anti-strike and anti-aircraft capabilities. "Russia and Syria must co-operate".

The Trump administration has placed sanctions on Russian individuals and entities, including penalties last month targeting Russian oligarchs who are close to President Vladimir Putin.

The President also insisted that the U.S. would not remain engaged in Syria forever under any circumstances.

"We are considering additional sanctions on Russian Federation and a decision will be made in the near future", said press secretary Sarah Sanders.

That was glaringly obvious in early February when U.S. forces killed more than 200 Russian mercenaries who tried to attack a base held by United States and mainly Kurdish forces in the oil-rich Deir Ezzor region. The world can not afford to be on a short fuse because of America's moods.

The Kremlin said earlier on Wednesday it hoped all sides involved in Syria would avoid doing anything to destabilise an already volatile situation in the Middle East.

"We are continuing to assess intelligence and are engaged in conversations with our partners and allies", it said. "But the fate of the region lies in the hands of its own people".

In addition, the summit is the first to take place since US President Donald Trump announced his plans to move the US embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, a decision roundly criticized by Arab states and their inhabitants.
