Russia, Iran, Syria Issue Warning Against Another Syria Strike

Syria had handed over its entire chemical arsenal to the UN's Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) in 2014 after hundreds of people were killed in a sarin gas attack in Damascus.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov also accused the US of trying to incite further violence in the region instead of finding a peaceful solution. "We call on the USA and its allies to respect Syria's sovereignty and refrain from actions similar to what happened on April 7, and which have serious ramification not only for regional, but also global security". Russian Federation has alleged that the victims were killed when Syrian warplanes hit a rebel chemical arsenal.

His comments come after Assad was blamed by the White House for a chemical weapons attack which killed at least 87 people, including 30 children, in the Syria's northern Idlib province on April 6.

Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Moallem said the meeting sent a "strong message" to Washington.

Hollande, Trudeau Pay Tribute to Canada's WWI Casualties
The cemetery is the final resting place for thousands of soldiers from the Great War, including 700 Canadians. They faced a near-impossible task: charge up a muddy, seven-kilometre-long ridge and force enemy troops off.

Moscow vetoed a Western draft United Nations resolution Wednesday, saying it failed to mention the need to inspect the area of the attack.

Lavrov on Friday expressed skepticism about a preliminary investigation conducted by the U.N.'s chemical weapons watchdog. He also demanded a broader investigation into the chemical weapon attack with officials from a variety of countries and called into question the current protocols for investigating such an attack in an unbiased manner. "The investigation into this high-profile incident must be transparent and leave no doubt that someone is trying to hide something".

In his first interview since the strike and the subsequent U.S. air assault, the Syrian president said reports the Syrian government carried out the attack were "100% fabrication".

"Such attempts won't succeed", he said.

The three ministers also discussed the beefing up of USA forces on Jordan's border with Syria.

The US airstrike on Syria was "the gravest violation of the global law", she added, "an act of aggression against a sovereign country". A former US official knowledgeable about the episode told Truthout that the Russians had actually informed their USA counterparts in Syria of the Syrian military's plan to strike the warehouse in Khan Sheikhoun 24 hours before the strike.

Russian Federation has staunchly backed Assad's government throughout a civil war that has dragged into a seventh year. It has conducted an air campaign in Syria since September 2015, saving Assad's government from imminent collapse and helping to reverse the Syrian military's fortunes.
