The team from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) will begin assessments in Douma one week after the assault that has sparked worldwide outrage.

Japan plans to avoid expressing direct support for actual USA military action against Syria, in an attempt to avoid damaging negotiations with Russian Federation over a decadeslong territorial row, government sources said Thursday.

"You don't rush decisions like this", Haley told reporters ahead of the meeting - the fourth on Syria at the council this week.

In 2013, he also predicted Obama's decision to intervene in the Syrian issue could lead to a war with Russian Federation that may turn into a "worldwide conflict", a conflict that is still a looming threat even though Trump has been president for over a year. "They were very bellicose".

Russia's foreign ministry spokeswoman on Thursday urged Moscow and Washington to solve their differences at the negotiating table.

Activists and rebels in Syria claimed that Syrian forces used chlorine gas in the attack on April 7 against Douma in the rebel-held area near Damascus.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and Liberal Democrat leader Sir Vince Cable repeated their demands for a parliamentary vote on possible intervention in Syria, while the SNP called for Parliament to hold a rare Saturday sitting in order to debate action.

"I think it is completely understandable that the president would feel that, given this crisis situation, he would need to be at home", Freeland said, adding that the Canadian delegation is looking forward to its meeting with Pence.
