"Ultimately, what Trump is doing with these deterrence exercises is influencing a very narrow bandwidth within the Syrian civil war, which is the use of chemical weapons", he said, pointing out chemical weapons attacks have killed an estimated 1,900 people in a war that has claimed half a million lives.

The ambassador to the U.N. said Russian Federation has blocked six attempts by the U.N. Security Council to make it easier to investigate the use of chemical weapons.

The missiles that US, French and British warships fired on suspected chemical facilities Saturday constituted the biggest Western attack against the regime in the seven-year war to topple Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. But it was the world saying that we've had enough of the use of chemical weapons.

May was taking questions in Parliament about her decision to authorize the joint strikes. The Syrian Central Media said the missiles targeted Shayrat air base in Homs.

She said it was morally and legally right to strike and "degrade Syria's chemical weapons activity" adding that the military action was not about "regime change".

The Prime Minister will tell MPs on Monday that the strikes were in the national interest because the use of chemical weapons can not be normalised, including in the UK.

"For we can not allow the use of chemical weapons to become normalised - either within Syria, on the streets of the United Kingdom or elsewhere". The Syrian government and its Russian ally deny involvement.

This week, the Syrian regime retook full control from rebels of the Damascus suburb of eastern Ghouta, including Douma, where the alleged chemical weapons attack took place, after a two-month regime offensive.

Damascus sky lights up with service to air missile fire as the United States launches an attack on Syria targeting different parts of the Syrian capital Damascus, Syria, early Saturday.

The renewed push for a UN-backed diplomatic solution follows a volatile emergency meeting of the UN Security Council, called by Moscow on Saturday, in which Russian Federation condemned the strikes as a violation of global law.

As the Kremlin press office reports, the leaders exchanged views on the situation after the United States and its allies' missile strike in the Syrian territory.

In an unusual move, the government says it will seek an emergency House of Commons debate on the airstrikes so legislators can have their say.

The Group of Seven leading industrialized nations has issued a joint statement endorsing the US -led air strikes in Syria.
