British PM May summons ministers to discuss possible military action in Syria
"Whenever the Syrian Army achieves victory in the field, some Western countries rise their voices and intensify their movements in an attempt to change the track of events", Assad said. However, there was no official announcement from Syria on the matter and there was also no indication of Syrian government forces entering the city Thursday.
The Kremlin was speaking as British ministers planned to gather to discuss whether to join the United States and France in a possible military attack on Syria that threatens to bring Western and Russian forces into direct confrontation. Trump's ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, told NBC News on Thursday the administration has "enough proof" of the chemical attack but was still considering its response.
Damascus has denied responsibility for the incident that has widened a rift between the West and Moscow, which backs Syria's Government.
May's office said in a statement that the Cabinet judged it "highly likely" the government of Syrian President Bashar Assad was behind the chemical attack last weekend in the town of Douma. He added that it would have an "utterly destructive impact on the Syrian settlement".
In 2015 lawmakers approved United Kingdom strikes on Islamic State group targets in Syria, but not on government forces.
"The line is used and it is active". "We have the proof that chemical weapons - at least chlorine gas - were used by Assad's regime", Macron told France's TF1 television. "Could be very soon or not so soon at all!"
"We continue to consider it extremely important to avoid any steps that could lead to more tension in Syria", Mr Peskov said. It was not clear whether the presence of the investigators could affect the timing of any USA military action.
Meanwhile, the Russian military said the Syrian government is now in full control of Duoma, once held by rebels opposing Assad.
His comments, made as he received Ali Akbar Velayati, foreign policy advisor to Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, were posted on the Syrian presidency's social media accounts.
Mrs May is expected to ask her cabinet to approve a form of British participation in action led by France and the U.S., aimed at Syrian President Bashar al Assad's chemical weapons infrastructure.
These "voices" and "any possible action" from the West "will contribute nothing but an increase in instability in the region, threatening worldwide peace and security", the Syrian leader stressed, speaking to Ali Akbar Velayati, a top adviser to Iran's Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.
