UK Prime Minister Theresa May and US President Donald Trump agreed on the need to deter chemical weapon use in Syria.
Meanwhile, Syrian state media said USA -led air strikes caused material damage only at a scientific research centre in the Barzeh district of Damascus on Friday. The United States, France and Britain fired 105 missiles overnight in retaliation, targeting Syria's chemical weapons program.

Russian Federation and Syria also clashed with the three Western allies over the legality of the airstrikes and responsibility for the Security Council's paralysis.
Russian Federation has countered that the US-led action was aimed at overthrowing Assad and keeping Moscow's influence in check. "We thank them both", Trump added.
Russian Federation accused Washington of putting worldwide peace at risk and requested a United Nations meeting in NY later in the day but it was not confirmed that it will happen.
