Syrian President Bashar al-Assad claimed Thursday that the alleged chemical weapons attack in Khan Sheikhoun was a "fabrication" to justify the U.S. missile strike. Russian Federation has alleged that the victims were killed when Syrian warplanes hit a rebel chemical arsenal.

"We gave up our arsenal three years ago", he added referring to a deal the USA helped broker. Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Moallem said Friday's meeting sent a "strong message" to Washington.

"Currently, 40% of voters say they approve of how Trump is handling foreign policy".

Samples taken from Khan Sheikhoun last week tested positive for the nerve agent sarin, the British delegation t the global chemical weapons watchdog OPCW said on Thursday.

"Even if we have them, we wouldn't use them, and we have never used our chemical arsenal in our history". "We condemn any use of chemical weapons", Moallem said.

"Russia, as their closest ally in the conflict, perhaps has the best means of helping Assad recognise this reality", he told a news conference.

"We hope that the Russian government concludes that they have aligned themselves with an unreliable partner in Bashar al-Assad". "It had kept itself fighting ISIL and supporting rebel groups on the ground", Challands said.

"I'll be speaking with Rex Tillerson in a little while, calling in".

But Mr Tillerson repeated the administration's new belief that "the reign of the Assad family is coming to an end".
