N ATrump is sending warships toward Syria

French President Emmanuel Macron called on the UN Security Council to resume initiative to handle political situation and end the humanitarian crisis in Syria after US -led strike reached their target, his office said on Saturday. But the vote at the end of an emergency meeting called by Russian Federation also demonstrated again the paralysis of the UN's most powerful body in dealing with Syria's seven-year conflict. Eight countries voted against and three abstained.

China and Bolivia voted in favor of the resolution, while the U.S., U.K., France, Sweden, Poland, Ivory Coast, Kuwait and the Netherlands opposed it.

The decision came after Syrian government forces allegedly used chemical weapons against rebels in Douma, a town near Damascus, earlier this month.

The UN Security Council met Saturday at Russia's request to discuss air strikes launched by the United States, France and Britain on Syria in response to a suspected chemical weapons attack. A resolution needs nine votes in favor and no vetoes by Russia, China, France, Britain or the United States to pass.

But the U.S. ambassador to the UN said President Donald Trump told her if the Syrian regime uses poisonous gas again, "the United States is locked and loaded" to strike again.

Arsene Wenger: 'Danny Welbeck offers England a lot'
He was a very good player". "At the moment everybody is talking about [Harry] Kane and rightly so". "But there is room for him". Recently, however, Welbeck has enjoyed a run in the team, weighed in with some important goals and looked particularly sharp.

Russia's UN Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia said after the vote the meeting confirmed that the USA and its allies "continue to put worldwide politics and diplomacy in the realm of mythmaking - myths invented in London, Paris and Washington". The three allies circulated a joint draft resolution at the Security Council that calls for unimpeded deliveries of humanitarian aid, enforcing a ceasefire and demands that Syria engage in UN-led peace talks.

She said the message from airstrikes that "crippled Syria's chemical weapons program" was "crystal clear".

"The United States of America will not allow the Assad regime to continue using chemical weapons".

The draft resolution will establish an independent investigation of allegations of chemical attacks in Syria with the aim of identifying the perpetrators.

It seeks answers from Syria on gaps in its chemical weapons declaration to the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.
