From Al Jazeera - April 15, 2018

Russian President Vladimir Putin has told Hassan Rouhani, Iran's president, that further strikes by Western allies in Syria will inevitably lead to chaos in international relations.

In a phone conversation on Sunday, the two leaders weighed in on the situation in Syria after the United States, France and Britain launched coordinated attackson Syria's alleged chemical facilities, Russian news agency RIAquoted the Kremlin's press service as saying.

The leaders stated that "this illegal action seriously damages the prospects for a political settlement in Syria," RIA added.

"Putin stressed that if such actions, committed in violation of the UN Charter, continue, it will inevitably lead to chaos in international relations," it added.

On Saturday, the US, French and British forces targeted three sites in Syria, which, according to US President Donald Trump, are associated with the chemical weapon capabilities of Bashar al-Assad, Syria's president.
