"It's indeed a question of gas, chlorine gas, and undoubtedly also other kinds of gas", Le Drian said.

China said it was "opposed to the use of force" in global relations.

The Pentagon on Saturday that the strikes had set back the Syrian chemical weapons programme back years, even as Mr Trump kept the option open for further attacks on the regime until it stopped its use of prohibited agents.

Reaction from the worldwide community to the strikes has ranged widely on Saturday.

Haley relayed the message from President Trump at an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council hours after a USA -led bombardment targeted Syrian chemical weapons facilities.

France urges Russian Federation to join peace push after Syria strike
In announcing the strikes, Trump directly blamed Russian Federation for enabling the Syrian regime's use of chemical weapons. "A pre-designed scenario is being implemented", Russian ambassador to the U.S.

U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis on Friday night said the assault was a "one-time shot", so long as Assad does not repeat his use of chemical weapons.

Images from the satellite imagery company DigitalGlobe now appear to show at least two of these three sites - the Barzeh Research and Development Center and the Him Shinshar chemical weapons storage complex - before and after the strikes.

Global leaders have been reacting to Friday night's air strike in Syria.

That attack, [Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White says], hit a Syrian military air base and was meant to focus on Syria's ability to deliver chemical weapons. "Again, now, it's the anniversary of the last chemical attack... and we thought, probably, hopefully this time will be different, it will be a serious one compared to past year". However, in 2016, under former President Barack Obama, 15,479 Syrian refugees were reportedly admitted into the U.S. The US mission in Syria remains to defeat ISIS and not get involved in the country's civil war, White said.

His daughter thanked the Salisbury hospital staff, adding: "I have left my father in their care, and he is still seriously ill". Sergei Skripal, 66, is also making progress and doctors hope he will be able to leave hospital "in due course".

UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres told the Security Council that the airstrikes were reportedly limited to three military locations inside Syria.

British Prime Minister Theresa May said on Saturday that the United Kingdom is "confident" that the air strikes carried out by Britain, the U.S. and France had been successful, and that it had been "right and legal" to take action.

President Bashar al-Assad has been in power in Syria since 2000.

Syrian forces vacated key military airports and positions in recent days and have been on high alert after U.S. President Donald Trump warned his country would respond to the suspected chemical attack last weekend.

Urging the Security Council to assume its responsibilities, Guterres said a "lack of accountability" emboldens those who would use such chemical weapons by providing them with the "reassurance of impunity". Trump and his entire national security team consulted closely with allies, with one senior official saying, "I would say it's rare for more than a few days to go by that the President doesn't have a consultation with President Macron or British counterparts".
