Russia calls for UN meeting on Syria

April 14, 2018

Russia has questioned the rationale for US air strikes on Syria, which have lit up the Damascus sky.

Russia's ambassador to the United States says there will be consequences for the US-led military strikes on Syria, adding that it was not acceptable to insult Russia's president.

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

"Again, we are being threatened. We warned that such actions will not be left without consequences."

"Insulting the President of Russia is unacceptable and inadmissible," he added.

"The US - the possessor of the biggest arsenal of chemical weapons - has no moral right to blame other countries."
