United States to impose more sanctions on Russian Federation

It has met with Syrian officials but has not visited the town at the center of the controversy.

When asked whether Russian Federation was prepared to work with the proposals of Western countries at the UN, Ryabkov told TASS news agency: "Now the political situation is extremely tense, the atmosphere is extremely electrified, so I will not make any predictions".

Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov described relations with the West as worse than during the Cold War.

Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the main opposition Labour Party, said Britain should introduce a War Powers Act to ban military action without Parliament's approval.

At least 100 missiles were fired from British Tornado fighter-bombers and U.S. ships in the recent strike on Syria.

Passengers on the convoy told AFP after arriving in the northern province of Aleppo that gunfire had killed one person and wounded three others, all from the same family, but gave no details on the victim.

Moscow advised the Western countries to exercise restraint and wait for the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) to launch and complete its investigation into the suspected Douma chemical attack before taking any action. Britain says there's proof Syria is responsible, not the rebels because a government helicopter delivered the chemicals inside a barrel bomb.

Meanwhile, Nato's secretary general said the weekend's US-led strikes will reduce the Syrian government's capabilities of carrying out new chemical attacks.

Russian Federation has military forces, including air defenses, in several areas of Syria to support President Bashar Assad in his long war against anti-government rebels.

State TV broadcast the rally live from the central Omayyad Square.

For his own part, Syria's President Assad said in a statement: "Aggression will only make Syria and the Syrian people more determined to continue fighting and pulverizing terrorism in every inch of the country".

The strikes have ratcheted up worldwide tension, as the United States and Russian Federation exchanged threats of retaliation.

Stepping up the pressure on Syria's President, US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley indicated the sanctions to be announced Monday would be aimed at companies "that were dealing with equipment" related to Mr Assad's alleged chemical weapons use.

The day before the strikes Russian President Vladimir Putin warned during phone talks with his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron against "ill-considered and unsafe actions" in Syria which could lead to "unpredictable consequences". Mattis said that no follow-up strikes are planned, adding that the Pentagon was careful to ensure the safety of Russian and Syrian civilians nearby.

On Saturday, US President Donald Trump, British Prime Minister Theresa May and French President Emmanuel Macron convened by telephone to discuss their joint action.

But on Friday night, Mr. Trump said the "prepared to sustain this response" until Syrian President Bashar Assad halts his believed use of chemical weapons.
