US did not violate red lines during Syria strikes Russia

Канада и Япония договорились о военном сотрудничестве

Thirty-four chemical attacks - the majority the result of chlorine use - are confirmed to have taken place inside Syria since 2013 and before the latest atrocity in Douma, according to the Independent International Commission of Inquiry on the Syrian Arab Republic.

Dujarric said de Mistura held consultations with the Arab League secretary-general, foreign ministers including from Egypt, Jordan and Iraq and the European Union high representative, and joined Guterres at meetings with the king, crown prince and foreign minister of Saudi Arabia.

The U.S. State Department has accused the Syrian government and its ally Russian Federation of trying to cover up the alleged April 7 attack.

Early on Tuesday, Syrian state media said the country's air defences had responded to a missile attack over the western city of Homs.

Following the US-led bombardment of Syria last week over an alleged chemical attack by Damascus, Russia says it has no reason to not supply its S-300 missile system to Syria, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said.

"If the goal is to force a Syrian president, under a hail of bombs, to sit at the table of negotiations... this goal is simply unrealistic", Nebenzia told the Security Council.

"We need new ideas on political side to move forward", a Swedish diplomat said Wednesday in briefing on the UN Security Council trip to Sweden.

General Kenneth McKenzie, director of the US military's Joint Staff, said Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's regime retains a "residual" chemical capability at a variety of sites across the country.

Equities analysts forecast that Amazon.com, Inc. will post $6.69 earnings per share for the current fiscal year. (NASDAQ:AMZN). Also, the number of funds holding New Germany Fund Inc in top ten equity positions was flat from 0 to 0 for the same number.

Earlier on Thursday, the Damascus-based Palestinian official Khaled Abdelmajid said the government was giving hard-liners two days to leave Yarmouk and Hajr al-Aswad, leaving the government with control of the two neighborhoods.

"At present, we do not know when the [Fact-Finding Mission] team can be deployed to Douma", Uzumcu told the OPCW's Executive Council, adding that he will only consider deploying the inspectors once the United Nations security team determines that it is safe and only if the inspectors get unhindered access to the site.

OPCW chief Ahmet Uzumcu said the incident highlighted "the highly volatile environment" in which the fact-finding team had to work.

He told reporters that in the past Syrian officials concealed what they had done with chemical weapons.

United Nations security experts have said they were negotiating with Syrian and Russian authorities for global chemical inspectors to deploy to the site of an alleged toxic gas attack near Damascus, after a reconnaissance mission came under fire.

Russia-U.S. relations have sunk to post-Cold War lows over the Ukrainian crisis, the war in Syria and the allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

Nauert said the United States anxious that the evidence would "deteriorate" the longer the inspectors were delayed. They are expected to gather soil and other samples to help identify the substances - if any - used in an attack.

But on Wednesday, OPCW said that's not what happened.
