Among the contentious proposals, the draft resolution would establish an independent investigation of allegations of chemical attacks in Syria with the aim of identifying the perpetrators.

"This is not about regime change". Her office said she planned to tell them the strikes were "in Britain's national interest" and were carried out to stop further suffering from chemical weapons attacks.

Appearing on Fox News Sunday, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said in a military context the president's declaration of "mission accomplished" refers only to the "task now in front of you" and the United States will continue to monitor Assad's use of chemical weapons and are prepared to respond with further action in the form of additional military action.

Opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn, who has opposed British military action throughout his career, described the Syrian attack as "legally questionable".

"I've been talking with them and seeing their messages on Facebook", said Mercho, "thank God they're all safe". "The humanitarian intervention is a legally debatable concept at the present time", he said in an interview with the BBC.

European leaders sought to capitalise on the attention on Syria Sunday with attempts to co-opt Russian Federation into a fresh diplomatic push to end seven years of fighting.

Assad told his visitors that the U.S., Britain and France, which carried out the strikes, had waged a campaign of "lies and misinformation" against Russian Federation and Syria.

"The Syrian regime has been doing the same thing for seven years".

Mr Corbyn warned of an escalation in a "proxy war" between the United States and Russian Federation.

Senior Russian military officials said on Saturday that Syria's air defenses, which are mostly made up of Soviet-era systems, had shot down 71 of the Western missiles. Speaking on Fox News Sunday, Haley listed three aims for the United States: ensuring that chemical weapons are not used in any way that poses a risk to USA interests, that Islamic State is defeated and that there is a good vantage point to watch what Iran is doing.

"Yesterday we saw American aggression".

"From the point of view of the president, this was aggression and we share this position", Russia's TASS news agency quoted MP Sergei Zheleznyak as saying after the meeting with Assad.

"We were apprised in advance of the operation", Trudeau told reporters at the end of a three-day visit to Peru.

Both countries have dismissed the reports of the alleged gas attack as bogus, accusing Washington of using it as a pretext for the strikes. Moscow condemned the Western states for refusing to wait for OPCW's findings before attacking.
