Further attacks on Syria will cause chaos in int'l ties, Putin warns

The leaders of Russian Federation and Iran have reaffirmed mutual cooperation on issues involving Syria following US-led missile strikes against the country last week.

In a telephonic conversation with his Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, Putin said that the strikes launched by the U.S. and its allies against Syria had seriously damaged the chances of achieving a peaceful resolution in the Syria conflict, according to a Kremlin statement.

The U.S. -led strikes on Syria proves that Washington has direct ties with terrorists, Rouhani said, stressing "The Americans showed such a reaction when they felt the terrorists were dislodged from an important region like Eastern Ghouta", Rouhani said in a phone call with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The President himself said that if such actions of the West continues, it will inevitably lead to chaos in global relations.

Putin said further Western missile strikes on Syria would lead to chaos in worldwide relations, Tehran Times reported. All three participants insisted the strikes were not aimed at toppling President Bashar al-Assad or intervening in the conflict.

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

The moves are believed to show Putin's determination that Russian Federation will work with Iran and Turkey as a united front to resolve the Syrian situation.

The inspectors for the Hague-based OPCW met Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad in the presence of Russian officers and a senior Syrian security official in Damascus for about three hours on April 15. Moscow condemned the Western states for refusing to wait for OPCW's findings before attacking.

Britain's Ambassador Peter Wilson said at a news conference in The Hague that the United Nations had cleared the inspectors to go but they had been unable to reach Douma because Syria and Russian Federation had been unable to guarantee their safety.

Speaking to the BBC, Britain's Foreign Secretary (Minister) Boris Johnson said that Western powers had no plans for further missile strikes, though they would assess their options if Damascus used chemical weapons again.

Stating that the US' attack on Syria was carried out when the inspectors of Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons had arrived in Syria, saying: "The United Nations was created to build consensus among countries and should not be used for political interests of some powers because if anyone wants to act in their own way in the worldwide stage, we will face chaos".

The US ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, said on Sunday the US would announce new economic sanctions aimed at companies dealing with equipment related to Mr Assad's alleged use of chemical weapons.

"We have absorbed the strike", the official told Reuters.
