New Western Syria strikes would spark 'chaos', Putin tells Rouhani

MOSCOW: New Western air strikes in Syria would provoke "chaos" in international members of the family, Russian President Vladimir Putin advised his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani on Sunday.

Speaking to Rouhani by way of telephone the day after US-led strikes on suspected chemical guns facilities, Putin said "if such actions, carried out in violation of the United Nations Charter, are repeated, that would inevitably provoke chaos in international relations," according to a remark from the Kremlin.

The two leaders "found that this illegal action seriously damaged the prospects of a political settlement in Syria," the remark said.

The United States, France and Britain on Saturday launched strikes in opposition to Bashar al-Assad's executive every week after an alleged chemical assault within the Syrian city of Douma, just east of the capital Damascus.


Putin denounced on Saturday "with the utmost firmness" the strikes which he described as "an act of aggression against a sovereign state which is at the forefront of the fight against terrorism".
