"The United States of America will not allow the Assad regime to continue using chemical weapons".

But the U.S. ambassador to the UN said President Donald Trump told her if the Syrian regime uses poisonous gas again, "the United States is locked and loaded" to strike again. "When our president draws a red line, our president enforces the red line".

The fact-finding mission from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons was expected to head to Douma, where the suspected attack took place and where Russian Federation said rebels had now capitulated to government control. Eight members opposed the resolution, including the U.S.and European allies on the council.

The resolution gained only three votes in its favour - from Russia, China and Bolivia.

She said the message from airstrikes that "crippled Syria's chemical weapons program" was "crystal clear".

The UN Security Council has rejected a resolution, proposed by Russian Federation, to condemn strikes on Syria by the US, UK and France.

While reiterating that China is in favour of peaceful dispute settlements Zhaoxu said: "Unilaterally taking military action by circumventing the Security Council is inconsistent with the principles and purposes of the UN Charter and runs counter to the norms of global law and those governing worldwide relations."He further said that China stands for peace and security in the Middle East and the world at large".

Air strikes by the three allies on Saturday hit three targets that Western officials said were linked to chemical weapons development in the Damascus and Homs areas.

British ambassador to the UN Karen Pierce said, "It was both right and legal to take military action together with our closest allies to alleviate further humanitarian suffering".

Retaliatory attacks: In response, the US, France and the United Kingdom launched attacks early Saturday morning against three sites near Damascus and Homs that were allegedly used for the research, development production, testing and storage of chemical weapons.

Syria and its ally, Russia, deny any such attack, which activists say killed more than 43 people last weekend.
