France's President Says He Has 'Proof' Syria Used Chemical Weapons

France's President Says He Has 'Proof' Syria Used Chemical Weapons France's President Says He Has 'Proof' Syria Used Chemical Weapons

Macron said Paris had established that the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad had used chemical weapons, including chlorine, on April 7 in the town of Douma.

"We have to make a decision at the right moment, when we will consider it useful and the most effective".

He indicated the response would come once all of the necessary information had been gathered and verifications carried out.

Assad said Thursday that Western threats to strike Syria are based on "lies" and seek to undermine his forces' advances near Damascus.

Macron said in February this year that "France will strike" if chemical weapons are used against civilians.

France is poised to join punitive strikes on Syria over the alleged use of chemical weapons.

"The third element is the red lines defined by France".

US President Donald Trump tweeted earlier that Russian Federation needed to get ready. Pentagon chief Jim Mattis and Mr Trump's national security team met on Wednesday after the president warned Russian Federation to expect a missile strike on Syria, tweeting missiles "will be coming". "Could be very soon or not so soon at all", he added.

The British Cabinet is due to discuss the government's response later.

He said the priority was to avoid an escalation across the region.

The Kremlin warned Thursday that the USA and its allies, who are weighing military strikes on Syria, to avoid any steps that could destabilize the situation there.

In Russia, Syria's main military ally, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov urged against "any steps which could lead to an escalation of tensions".

Macron reiterated that France wasn't at war with Syria but that its enemy in the region was ISIS, the Islamist movement that has claimed responsibility for terrorist attacks on French territory dating back to 2015.

The attack on the town of Douma on April 7 killed dozens of people, including children.

But President Assad's government denies being behind any chemical attack.

The Jaish al-Islam group in Douma agreed on Sunday to withdraw, hours after the suspected chemical weapons attack on the town that has raised the prospect of US strikes.
