Trump warns Russia: Missiles 'will be coming' to Syria

Syrian government forces backed by Russia have pounded Eastern Ghouta in recent months

The US proposal would allegedly determine culpability for chemical weapons attacks.

The alleged chemical incident in Douma was only beneficial for the militants, Russia's permanent representative to the UN, Vassily Nebenzia, said, urging his Western counterparts to explain why Damascus would decide to do so.

All of this comes after President Trump tweeted Sunday that "Russia and Iran" were responsible for the chemical attack and wared there would be a big price to pay.

The announcement comes as the Republican president weighs military strikes in the war-wracked country - and shortly after the Federal Bureau of Investigation raided the offices of Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen. Vice President Mike Pence is slated to take his place instead, although he will not be traveling to Columbia.

"At the president's request, the Vice President will travel in his stead", White House spokesperson Sarah Sanders said in a statement.

The OPCW has agreed to send a fact finding team to Douma and US President Donald Trump has cancelled his first official trip to Latin America to focus on this issue.

US President Donald Trump has threatened military action after last weekend's suspected chemical attack on a rebel-held town near Damascus, which activists and rescuers say killed at least 40 people.

Lyons said the U.S.is searching for that "Cuban Missile Crisis moment, where they show the world that Russian Federation is involved".

The leader of the opposition Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, speaking earlier on Wednesday, said parliament should be given a say on any military action May wants to take.

Russian Federation had proposed setting up an investigative panel under rules that would have required Security Council approval of its findings - a measure the West charged would compromise its independence.

Adding to the volatile situation, Iran, Assad's main ally along with Russian Federation, threatened to respond to an air strike on a Syrian military base on Monday that Tehran, Damascus and Moscow have blamed on Israel.

Russian Federation vetoed a USA -drafted resolution to create a new inquiry to ascertain blame for such attacks.

France said it will retaliate against the regime of the Syrian president if evidence emerges that it was behind the attack, a government spokesman said.

It comes as Russian Federation used its veto power at the United Nations Security Council on Wednesday to prevent an investigation into the attack by Bashar al-Assad's regime on Douma, a besieged town in eastern Ghouta, that killed up to 80 people and injured hundreds more.

Pressure is mounting on the British Prime Minister to support President Donald Trump, who on Monday promised "forceful action" would be taken by the United States against the Assad regime.
