Further attacks on Syria will cause chaos in int'l ties, Putin warns

Russian President Vladimir Putin has warned that further attacks on Syria by Western allies would inevitably lead to chaos in international relations and ultimately damage prospects for political reconciliation in the war-torn country.

Putin made the comments in his phone conversation with his Iranian counterpart President Hassan Rouhani and the two leaders agreed that “this illegal action seriously damages the prospects for a political settlement in Syria,”Russian news agency RIA quoted the Kremlin press service as saying.

“Putin stressed that if such actions, committed in violation of the UN Charter, continue, it will inevitably lead to chaos in international relations,” RIA added.

The attack on Syria was ordered by US President Donald Trump “on targets associated with the chemical weapons capabilities”.

The attacks early on Saturday come in response to a suspected chemical weapons attack in the former rebel stronghold of Douma last weekend.
