Russian Federation has been unwavering in its backing of Assad as it aims to help the regime win the Syrian Civil War. By acting merely on the basis of inputs from their intelligence agencies, the US -led alliance flouted worldwide law.

Assad also said he did not expect Western oil and gas companies to work in the country, according to Sablin, who quoted Assad as saying, "We are not waiting for Western companies here, especially in the oil and gas sphere". "We remain postured to protect our forces and those of the coalition should anything occur", the general said. "The strategy failed. It must be time for a new one".

United Nations chemical weapons inspectors who arrived in Syria at the weekend have promised to investigate what happened in Douma despite the air strikes against chemical weapons installations.

From Moscow, President Vladimir Putin denounced the operation as "an act of aggression" but officials also noted that no Russian military assets had been threatened.

A senior French official noted that President Emmanuel Macron did not tell Putin about the strikes when they spoke on the phone Friday, but "certain de-confliction mechanisms" had already been triggered by that point and "both knew that a new phase was going to begin quickly".

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Sunday that the sanctions are being imposed "without any link to any realities".

Trump's remarks on Twitter are reminiscent of President George W. Bush's 2003 speech announcing an end to major combat operations in Iraq on the on the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln, with a big sign that read, "Mission Accomplished" in the backdrop. Haley stressed the USA was "not looking for war" and "not looking to kill people".

The White House, mired in controversies, is not likely to pursue Assad too aggressively, Piazza said.

That gave Syria the green light to continue its weapons programme and use them against civilians, she said, adding a Russian disinformation campaign was now in full force.

Speaking to Rouhani by telephone the day after US-led strikes on suspected chemical weapons facilities, Putin said "if such actions, carried out in violation of the United Nations Charter, are repeated, that would inevitably provoke chaos in worldwide relations", according to a statement from the Kremlin.

She said there was "clear evidence" Syria was behind the chemical attack.
