Kremlin warns U.S. to avoid steps that could destabilize Syria

With increasing concerns about a U.S. -Russia proxy war in Syria, Macron insisted that "France will not allow an escalation or something that could damage the stability" of the region.

The extensive military force which could soon be in striking distance of Syria will have to outfox sophisticated Russian air defence radars.

French President Emmanuel Macron said Thursday that there is evidence that the Syrian regime of Bashar Al Assad used chemical weapons.

Macron said during an interview on French television that France has "proof" that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's regime used chemical weapons.

Russian Federation has warned the West against attacking its ally, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, who is also supported by Iran, saying that there is no evidence of a chemical attack in the Syrian town of Douma near Damascus.

Macron said in February this year that "France will strike" if chemical weapons are used against civilians. It prompted worldwide condemnation and the promise of action in response from U.S. President Donald Trump and Macron.

"We will need to take decisions in due course, when we judge it most useful and effective", Macron said.

US President Donald Trump, who said on Wednesday that missiles were "coming", has now tweeted that he "never said when". "Could be very soon or not so soon at all!"

"Germany will not take part in possible military action, on which no decisions have yet been taken", she told a press conference alongside Danish Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen.

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