United States airstrikes: UN Secretary General, Antonio Guterres calls for restraint

I was abhorred by the chemical weapons attack in Khan Shaykhun, Syria, and the death and injury of many innocent civilians.

The attack early Friday, Syrian time, came within an hour Thursday, New York time, of the council ending deadlocked, closed-door deliberations on a draft resolution calling for an investigation into the toxic gas attack.

The U.S. and Russian Federation traded accusations at an emergency meeting of the U.N. Security Council today.

The UN Security Council appeared divided during an emergency session on Friday where the United States warned it is ready to hit Syria again after missile strikes that infuriated Russian Federation and fuelled calls for a push to end the six-year war.

While Russia has called for a united anti-terrorist front in the region, the U.S. has chosen its own path, he said.

Britain, France and the United States had pushed for a vote on their proposed measure, but chose to hold off during the meeting.

USA allies in Europe showed support for the strike during the meeting, and United Kingdom ambassador Matthew Rycroft called it a "proportionate response to unspeakable acts".

Mexico would recover land lost to the United States in an earlier war, including Texas, in exchange for German gold and weapons. The assassination, while ultimately a scapegoat, became the catalyst for the start of World War I, exactly one month later.

"It led to a series of atrocities in the (Middle East) region", added the rather emotional representative of Bolivia.

Russia, which backed up that explanation, argued Friday that the chemical weapons capabilities of the rebels were being ignored, CBS News reported.

It said in a statement Friday that the real objective of the US attack was to "weaken the strength of the Syrian army in confronting terrorist groups". We are prepared to do more.

Safronkov also criticised the Security Council's investigative arm, and told British UN ambassador Matthew Rycroft "you are afraid of a real independent investigation".

"Yes, Bashar al-Assad should pay a price for the slaughter of civilians in Syria".

Friday during the U.N. Security Council's session on Syria, Russia's deputy U.N. envoy Vladimir Safronkov said President Donald Trump missile strike on Syria in response to that country's alleged use of chemical weapons was an "act of aggression", which will "only facilitated the strengthening of terrorism".

"This man who is now in office in America claimed that he wanted to fight terrorism but today all terrorists in Syria are celebrating the U.S. attack", Rouhani said in a speech aired by state television.
