She said "the United States estimates that (President Bashar) Assad has used chemical weapons in the Syrian war at least 50 times".

"A pre-designed scenario is being implemented", Russian Ambassador Anatoly Antonov said on Twitter.

"This is grotesque", Pierce said of the Russian statement as she left an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council called by Russia on United States threatened military action in response to the alleged attack. "We warned that such actions will not be left without consequences".

Russian Federation has been a staunch ally of Syrian President Bashar Assad's government and has helped turn the tide of war in his favor since entering the conflict in September 2015.

Ambassador Antonov said: "Insulting the President of Russian Federation is unacceptable and inadmissible".

Nikki Haley told an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council called by Russian Federation that should the USA and its allies decide to act in Syria it will be to defend "a bedrock global norm that benefits all nations" - the prohibition on the use of chemical weapons.
