Macron says persuaded Trump to keep troops in Syria

Bulgaria France Plans to Provide € 50 Million for Humanitarian Projects in Syria

She added that the United States still wants to "crush ISIS" and expects regional allies to help securing the region.

PARIS-French President Emmanuel Macron said Sunday he convinced his USA counterpart, Donald Trump, to not disengage from Syria and to limit airstrikes to chemical-weapons targets.

The White House, however, pushed back on the reports.

The French leader, described as centrist and pro-free-market, is set to make a state visit to the US next week and is scheduled to travel to Russian Federation next month.

Mr Macron insisted the Western allies had "complete worldwide legitimacy to act" in Syria.

Asked if using military force would restore peace, Macron said that "France is the country that has been the most active in terms of diplomacy and humanitarian aid in recent months, and we came at a time when this strike was essential to give credibility to our community".

He said the military strikes early on Saturday had been "perfectly carried out" but were not a declaration of war on Syria.

Embajada rusa: Ataque contra Siria tuvo falsos motivos
Para la portavoz del Ministerio de RR.EE. ruso, Maria Zakharova , EE.UU. sanciona a Rusia por el simple hecho de ser " un actor global ".

The United States, Britain and France said they only hit Syria's chemical weapons capabilities and the strikes were not aimed at toppling Syrian President Bashar al-Assad or intervening in the civil war.

Russian President Vladimir Putin stated on Saturday that the strikes had been carried out in violation of norms and principles of the worldwide law.

Despite soaring tensions with Russia, Macron stressed the need to "talk to everyone" in pursuing a Syrian settlement, saying his plans to visit Moscow in May remain unchanged.

The inspectors will investigate the site of the alleged chemical attack in Douma, which the Western allies believe killed dozens of people with the use of chlorine gas and possibly Sarin.

Commenting further on the issue, Macron said that the Western strikes had split Turks from Russian Federation in Syria, as Ankara has approved the attack.

Three sites. Firstly, the Barzeh complex, which the USA says is a centre for development, production and testing of chemical and biological weapons, although Syria denies this. Stoltenberg said: "Before the attack took place last night, North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies exhausted all other possible ways to address this issue to the U.N. Security Council but ... were blocked by Russian Federation ..."

The US said 105 missiles were launched and it believed none were intercepted by Syrian defences.
